SIMPLE S’mores Cupcakes

How to make a S'mores cupcake with graham cracker crust, marshmallows and chocolate #smores #cupcakes #simplepartyfood

These cute little cupcakes have all the flavor of a S’more but without the mess!  A mini graham cracker crust is topped with a chocolatey moist cupcake that is filled with mini chocolate chips and then topped with a fluffy marshmallow frosting.

What’s not to love about that?

How to make S’more Cupcakes:

Start by making the ‘graham cracker’ part of the S’more, which in this case is in the form of a crust.  Combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter together and bake for until done.

The batter goes on top of the cooled graham cracker crust (with a few more sprinkled on for good measure) and baked.

Don’t get us wrong, we love ourselves a good, gooey s’more over a fire, but this little cupcake here can be enjoyed even during one of your most uppity cocktail parties.
