S’mores Cupcakes

June 14, 2013 by Jenny Melrose


The Summer always makes me think of campfires and making S’mores.  Even as an adult I look forward to the smell of a Summer fire and the messiness of a good S’mores after a long fun day of every backyard idea imaginable..  This year it’s a bit more difficult to get out to enjoy a campfire with a newborn so I took the traditional S’mores and turned it into a S’mores Cupcakes.  I’m excited to now enjoy the gooey goodness of a S’more all Summer long.

The first step in creating these S’mores Cupcakes is to simply follow the box directions of Betty Crocker’s Premium Muffin Mix for Cinnamon Streusel Muffins.  Remember how I said it’s difficult to get out for a campfire with a newborn, well it’s difficult to make everything from scratch too.  Therefore, I’m all about cutting a corner or two when I know that a product is out of this world, like this muffin mix.

The second step is to pour the batter into the lined cupcake tin and then press a piece of Hershey’s Chocolate into each cupcake.  Sprinkle the top of each cupcake with the prepared streusel and bake for 15-20 minutes.

Once the cupcakes are baked, turn the oven to broil.  Place one piece of chocolate on each cupcake and melt the chocolate.

Finally, place a marshmallow on top of each cupcake and roast the marshmallows.  Once the marshmallows are roasted, gently press down on the marshmallows to flatten them.

These S’mores Cupcakes are ooey gooey goodness.  The cinnamon muffin mix with the chocolate inside is fabulous by itself, but topped with another piece of chocolate and a roasted marshmallow, they are absolutely out of this world.
