Smores cupcake recipe
Oh my… this smores cupcake recipe will make your mouth water. These melt in your mouth smores cupcakes have all the joy of a warm and gooey s’more but packed into a delicious cupcake!
So convenient and sure to be a hi! That way you can enjoy campfire s’mores any time of the year. We just love this!
As I took at bite I realized that if I had graham crackers, this would taste just like s’mores! And just like that these fun cupcakes were born. Yeah!
Now the fun part is that these are so easy to make that even the kids can make them on their own. In fact… I had two super cute helpers with me.
So, round up the kiddos and get the entire family involved. You will have a blast making these and make lots of great memories.
There is just something about the combo of marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers that make the perfect dessert, don’t you think?
Now you can easily just leave the graham crackers whole like I did or you can crush them up and sprinkle them over the top of your cupcakes. I have done them both ways but my kids like the graham crackers whole just a bit more.
That is the beauty of this easy recipe. You can do what you prefer!
- Chocolate cake mix (And all the ingredients on the box instructions to make the cake.)
- Homemade Marshmallow Creme (Learn How to make Marshmallow Creme)
- cinnamon graham crackers
How to make smores cupcakes:
First, go ahead and make the cupcakes exactly as the package says. Now, you can use a homemade cupcake if you prefer but we just went for a box mix this time. Bake as directed.
Second, cool completely and put the marshmallow fluff on top of the cupcakes. It is very easy to make homemade marshmallow cream but you can buy store bought if you prefer.
You can put one or two tablespoons on top. We absolutely love this stuff so I usually put two! No need for a piping bag as a spoon is all you need.
Next, turn the broiler on and put the cupcakes in the oven. You want the marshmallow cream to get slightly melted so it looks like s’mores and spreads all over the top.
Don’t walk away during this step as it only takes a few seconds!!
Finally, add the graham crackers on top of the filled cupcakes. We left ours whole but you can crush them into crumbs if you prefer and put on the marshmallow frosting.
You really could even do both. It’s all about what you prefer.
The cupcakes can be served right away. If you do not plan to serve them immediately, they will need to be refrigerated.
It really is that simple to make smores cupcake recipe ! Another idea is to top the cupcakes with milk chocolate chips. Yum!
Tips for smores cupcakes:
Before you start making these cupcakes, make sure you have all of the materials you need. I don’t know why, but I never seem to have cupcake liners when I need them.
Now, when I make cupcakes for home, I like to use my silicone cupcake pan , but if I am making these homemade cupcakes for a party, I need some cute cupcake liners.
Learn from my lack of preparedness and just order a bunch from Amazon so you always have them on hand.
