S'mores Cupcakes

Chocolate...graham crackers...marshmallows...a combination that pretty much always ends in YUM! I've been wanting to make s'mores cupcakes for awhile now and had the perfect opportunity recently when I needed to bring some cupcakes to my daughter's preschool.

I searched a number of recipes online and I found one that looked and sounded like a winner here on Annie's Eats. The crushed graham cracker crust sounded tasty and her cupcakes looked beautiful. The recipe yielded enough graham cracker crust and batter for about 30 cupcakes.

 The chocolate cupcakes baked up perfectly and I will be using that recipe for my chocolate cupcakes from now on! But I wanted to do something different for the frosting and there was a recipe I had on my "must try" list that seemed perfect...Sweetapolita's Toasted Marshmallow Frosting!   She uses the frosting as a filling for her decadent looking 6-Layer Rich Chocolate Malted Cake...which I plan on making in the near future. After you are finished drooling over her mouth watering cake, you will find the frosting recipe towards the end of her post.

The combination  of the marshmallow frosting (which calls for actual toasted marshmallows) and the chocolate cupcake with graham cracker crust was delicious! An absolutely perfect combination that I will most definitely making again. If you try it, make sure to double the Toasted Marshmallow Frosting in order to have enough for 24 cupcakes.

But of course the cupcakes did need a finishing touch...

Can there ever be too much chocolate on a dessert?

My answer is no :)

Happy Baking!
