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
Half of a S'mores cupcake on a wooden cutting board

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.

  1. Get tired of s’mores? Never!!!! In fact when you announced it was s’mores week my mind went into overdrive and I had like 10 ideas right away. Then google took away my excitement when I realized most had been done! I’m not sure I can get a pedicure again because now I will totally be thinking about boob grazing and be freaked by the thought of it happening!!!

  2. Ok, I have never had a pedicure because I have a not at ALL irrational fear of strangers touching my feet. I blame my childhood as the most ridiculously ticklish person on the planet. That said, I flinch every time i get an accidental boob graze from the dental hygenist.
    It’s awkward. Also, I’m a librarian, so I freak out a little bit if I lean down to help someone at the computer that if I’m not careful I’m going to be the boob grazer instead of the grazee.

  3. i am totally with you on the boob grazing although my fear involves the hairdresser and my elbow. 🙂 and that dog smiling with those teeth is creepy i have to change the channel. can’t decide what fun treat to make this week decisions, decisions 🙂

    Never get tired of S’mores week. I love any and all forms of s’mores! I am getting a pedicure this weekend, now I am going to be freaked out the whole time!

  5. My friend and I have a standing appointment for pedicures and we have a running joke about trying to avoid “boobzilla”! One of the nail tech girls is the WORSE boob grazer, we are pretty sure she has some sort of fetish! And she has a crazy iron grip that keeps you from swerving to avoid.
    Please keep the s’mores coming! We are seeing our first hints that it might become summer eventually and I am starting to add new summer recipes to my notebook and these are PERFECT!

    The boob grazing fear has turned into a reality for me. I think I gasped audibly. I haven’t had a pedicure since then. These s’mores cupcakes are fabulous!
