S’mores Cupcakes

A s'mores cupcake with toasted marshmallows on top

Sometimes I have irrational fears.

The kind of fear that makes no sense to a level headed person…

For example, those creepy commercials and birthday cards of dogs with human teeth.

Who decided that was cute?

A dog doesn’t need to smile at me with human incisors to be adorable.  A dog on its own is more than enough.

I want the advertisers of the world to hear my cry.

I honestly had a dream last night that my dog was chewing her bone and looked over at me and smiled a big, toothy grin.

I woke up in a cold sweat.

Another irrational fear is when I am getting a pedicure, I am petrified that my feet are going to touch the boob of the pedicure lady.  She’s all hunched over my foot and I have had, on more than one occasion, a few near misses.

I don’t know why I am scared of this happening, but pedicures are never relaxing for me, because I am constantly on boob/foot high alert.

I’m sure the pedicure ladies are used to the boob-grazing, but I don’t want to be the culprit.

It’s completely irrational.

Now that we have established that I am a lunatic, I can easily share with you another irrational fear:

That you will get sick of my s’mores week.

I know it doesn’t make any sense…but it lays there in the back of my mind with Michael Meyers and pajama jeans.

Since I am trying to work through my issues, I am going to push forward and lay a S’mores Cupcake on ya.

It’s therapeutic.

S’mores Cupcakes.

Here’s the deal with these cupcakes:

They are pretty, they are easy and people will give you big, sloppy kisses if you make them.  That’s a fact.

Graham cracker crumbs in paper muffin cups
Pieces of Hershey's chocolate bar in a red bowl
Melted chocolate in a red bowl
Melted chocolate being spooned over a chocolate cupcake on a cooling rack

First, give each cupcake a little graham cracker crust…
Then bake up your cupcakes.  I used a chocolate box mix.  But if you are looking for a good chocolate cupcake recipe, try THIS ONE.
After your cupcakes are baked, get your milk chocolate ready…

And melt it up.
Give each cupcake a chocolate bath.
Make some delicious Marshmallow Buttercream and frost your cupcakes.

Now, if you’re feeling fancy get your garnish on.

Mini marshmallows on a sheet pan
Toasted mini marshmallows on a sheet pan

I lined a baking sheet with marshmallows…
And broiled them for 15 SECONDS!  Don’t walk away, because the toasting happens fast.  FAST!
That’s it!  Now take a bite.  Don’t be scared.
Isn’t that crust pretty?

Don’t forget that on Friday I will be having a link up party, so you guys can share all your favorite s’mores treats with me!

And if you’re wondering where I got those cupcake liners, here’s a link.

    I don’t get pedicures because I can’t stand to get my feet touched and sure don’t want to hit a boob! I also would never get tired of s’mores anything, I’m obsessed with them, my all time S’mores Board on Pinterest…’s yummy 🙂

      my comment should read “they are my all time favorites and you should check out my S’mores Board on Pinterest….not sure how this stuff was left out lol

  4. I made these with the chocolate cupcake recipe suggested. It was all VERY yummy but also very rich. I might try cutting down on the sugar in both the icing and the cupcake and see how it turns out. Also I think I broiled my mini marshmallows too close together, as they stuck together and were hard to separate. But I will definitely be making them again. Thanks for the recipe! I really love how the graham cracker crust actually stays with the cupcake 🙂

  5. Made these today for my mom’s birthday. They turned out so cute and YUMMY! It was my first foray into the world of buttercream and I can’t believe I haven’t ever tried to make it before! It was so easy and delicious! I did have a little trouble with “roasting” my marshmallows. They all stuck together in a big clump and were a little bit of a sticky mess, but all in all this was a super easy, super cute, and super yummy recipe.

  6. Oh my gosh, these are the BEST cupcakes!! I randomly found this recipe and website when I searched S’Mores cupcakes…lucky me! First of all the cupcakes were a HIT! They are delish! Secondly, your website is amazing…I love it and want to try almost everything! 🙂
