S’mores Cupcakes

No summer is complete without s’mores.  I actually don’t think I’ve had a proper s’more in quite some time, but these s’mores cupcakes are a great substitute.

They began with a mix of graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter that gets baked into the bottom of cupcake liners.  Once the crust has cooled, the cake batter gets poured on top, and then some more graham cracker crumbs are sprinkled on top of the batter before baking.IMG_5495

Once the cupcakes have cooled, it’s time to frost!  For this easy marshmallow frosting, all you need is four egg whites and a cup of sugar.  Heat the egg whites and sugar with a double broiler just until the sugar has melted, then beat off the heat until peaks form.

Decorating was the most fun.  After piping the frosting, I sprinkled some more graham cracker crumbs for added texture and stuck a small Hershey bar on top.

I was so pleased with how these came out, especially when I cut it down the center.  Just look at the layers!IMG_5499I brought these to a work function, and the reviews were very good!  These are definitely indulgent cupcakes, but they are so fun and summery!
