S'mores Cupcakes


Graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows... the perfect combination!  I saw this recipe on Bakerella and knew I had to try this one out.  They looked amazing!  And trust me, they are.  One of these and a big, cold glass of milk had me satisfied!  I haven't really baked much of anything since being in Korea (3 months... it's been THREE MONTHS and I have only baked one cake).. I've been in the baking mood, and I was bound and determined to make something that made my sweet tooth happy.  I'm proud to say they turned out pretty darn well, too!

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • Bag of jumbo marshmallows
Graham Cracker Crumb Topping
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • see recipe here (I cut it in half)
  • 4 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
  • 4 oz heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda.  Separate the mixture in half, into two bowls.

Stir cocoa into one bowl and the graham cracker crumbs into the other.
Add 1/2 cup milk, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1/4 cup oil to the cocoa mixture and beat until combined.
Repeat, adding the same ingredient to the graham cracker crumbs bowl.

Now to make the graham cracker crumb topping! Mix the brown sugar and graham cracker crumbs into a small bowl and  pour in the melted butter.  Stir until combined and crumbly.

Pour a little graham cracker cake batter into your baking cups and then sprinkle the topping mixture lightly on the surface.  Place a marshmallow half on top and then cover the marshmallow with the chocolate cake batter until it's about 3/4 full.  Sprinkle more of the topping mixture over it.

Bake the cupcakes for about 15 minutes.  This recipe made about 16 cupcakes for me.  Let the cupcakes cool and then top with the chocolate ganache.

Now EAT!  MmmMmMmmmmm.

Doesn't it just look pretty???!
