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.

    Hi there! I’m planning on making these tomorrow to take to work the next day. After the marshmallows broil, will they stay soft the day after?

    1. If you keep them in an airtight container they will be fine 🙂 Or if you’re worried, add and toast the marshmallows before you walk out the door.

  3. Absolutely amazing recipe. So easy to make, pretty much idiot proof and not to mention delicious. I made these for my little sisters and they gobbled up every last bite. They look so pretty too 🙂

  4. First of all, I am loving s’mores week. Secondly, I am literally crying from laughing so hard about the whole boob graze thing. You are fantastic!

    Loving all the Smores! I think I will make one of these treats for my Girl scouts.

    Oh and about those irrational fears… Yeah, right there with ya especially on the dogs with human teeth “shiver”. Too many near misses on the “boob grazing” to think about… um yeah can you say “awkward” LOL

  6. Sick of S’mores Week? As IF! The only thing better than your great recipes and food porn photos is your deft writing and your wit. You’re my new blog hero!

  7. Oh my gosh! You’re hilarious!!!
    And when you mentionned the pajama jeans, it reminds me I kept talking about it during 1 month. I was so obsessed!

    Today I complained I’ve not been craving anything lately… Well, you just woke my S’mores obssesion up! Thanks for sharing!

  8. I am on the floor laughing over the pedicure fear. I just don’t like my feet touched but man that just opens up a whole new level of fear. You’re hilarious. I adore these cupcakes.
