S'mores Cupcakes

Nothing says "summer time" more to me that S'mores. Seems like summer hits and everything and everyone has something "smores" flavored - Starbucks, Oreos, etc. 

A few weeks back I decided that homemade S'mores Cupcakes were in need (we were celebrating family birthdays and S'mores are always a hit with my family). I saw that there is some cakemix company (Betty Crocker maybe/) that has a S'mores cupcake kit for sale. But I figured I wanted to try it on my own the first time.

Now, for me, I love baking but sometimes it is nice to do something semi-homemade. By that I mean buying the base of "whatever" and doctoring it up some so you make it yours. In this case I bought:

  • Pillsbury Marshmallow Fluff frosting (which was okay but I think I next time I'll use something else.
  • Betty Crocker Dark Chocolate cake mix (which I then substituted butter for oil and milk for water, giving it a fluffier - homemade taste). 
  • Mini marshmallow, Hershey's chocolate bars and of course Honeymade graham crackers. 

The process was simple. mix a little butter with graham cracker crumbs (just toss them in the blender) and smush into the bottom of your cupcake holders. Then pour a little cupcake mix and bake as instructed. 

Top with marshmallows, chocolate bars and graham crackers. Ta-Da! Super easy and super delicious. 

My family just gobbled them up - even though they were VERY decadent!
