Yum! These are my go to cupcakes. I have been making these for years and they have always been a big hit. They have always been every-one’s favorite. I use regular yellow cake mix and doctor it up. The hardest part is toasting the marshmallows at the end. I wanted to make these to kick off BBQ season (and I needed it for my logo), now I just need to make some real s’mores in my fire-pit.
1 box yellow cake mix
Eggs, Oil and Water (according to package instructions)
1 sleeve of graham crackers, crushed
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tablespoon flour
1 bag of marshmallows (you can use large or mini marshmallows)
Chocolate pieces for decorating
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Crush graham crackers. I do so lightly in the package they come in. Don’t pop the bag or you will have a big mess. You can also place them in a large plastic bag and go over them with a rolling pin. They do not have to be crumb size, chunks work well in this recipe. Add flour to the chocolate chips. Set aside the chocolate chips and graham crackers.
Assemble cake mix according to the package directions. Mix until smooth. Add in graham crackers and chocolate chips to combine.
Line 2 muffin pans with liners. This recipe makes approx 22-24 cupcakes. Fill each cupcake liner with cake mix. I like to use an ice cream scoop it’s the perfect size to fill the muffin tins. Bake according to package directions.
Allow cupcakes to cool. Once cupcakes are baked top each cupcake with marshmallows. You can get creative here. You can use one marshmallow or several. I like to cut them in half and place 4 halves on the top of the cupcake.
To brown the cupcakes you can do it one of two ways. I like to get fancy and use my blow torch (I have to use it for something) or you can place the cupcakes under the broiler. If you go with the broiler option (which I do use regularly) watch them carefully and don’t put them too close to the flame. When the marshmallows are toasted top with chocolate pieces. Enjoy!
