These Are Going To Make You Want S’more!

I love s’mores so much, that even now, years later, I am still obsessed.  I have passed down my little obsession to my kids and grand kids and we still gather around the little fire pit I purchased years ago to make our own s’mores.  However, since we cannot always do that due to the heat, we now make these on an almost weekly basis (sometimes it is even daily!).  They have the perfect chocolatey taste, cookie texture and gooey consistency.  These are the best sweet treat anyone could ever ask for!
Check out what our friends over at OMG Desserts had to say about this:

“Delicious chocolate cupcakes with a  graham cracker crust, filled with light and fluffy marshmallow filling and topped with milk chocolate ganache.”


I mean, that description sounds positively divine!




For the crust:

1 1/3 cup Keebler graham crackers crumbs

5 Tablespoon Domino sugar

5 Tablespoon Land O’ Lakes unsalted butter-melted


For chocolate cupcakes:

1 cup Domino sugar

3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Gold Medal all-purpose flour

6 tablespoons Hershey’s Cocoa powder

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup McArthur milk- room temperature

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 large egg-lightly beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup boiling water


For marshmallow filling:

2 egg whites

1/2 cup Domino sugar

1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter

1 teaspoon vanilla


For milk chocolate ganache:

1 cup Land O’ Lakes heavy whipping cream

10 oz. Ghirardelli milk chocolate-finely chopped

1/2 Tablespoon vegetable oil




To make the crust:

Place rack in center of the oven and preheat the oven to 325 F, line cupcake tins with 16 cupcake liners and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter and mix well with a fork.

Press about 1 1/2 Tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of each cupcake liners and bake 6 minutes, then set aside to cool.

To make the cupcakes:

In a large bowl combine cocoa, sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Add oil, milk, egg, and vanilla. Beat for 2 minutes with a hand-held electric mixer on medium speed, then add boiling water and beat to combine (batter will be thin). Divide batter evenly between cupcake liners over the crust (it should be 3/4 full)

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20-25 minutes. Set aside to cool in pan, then using a sharp knife or cupcake corer hollow out the centers of each cupcake(cut the top of each center and save for later to place it back onto the fillin).

To make marshmallow filling:

In a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water whisk together egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar, until sugar dissolves (be careful, the water shouldn’t touch the bottom of the bowl). Continue whisking over simmering water until egg mixture is warm to touch, then remove from heat and continue beating with the mixer until still peaks form. At the end add vanilla and mix well.

Transfer the filling to a piping bag with round tip or use plastic bag and cut off the corner and fill the cupcakes. Place back the tops from centers of cupcakes.

To make the ganache:

On a low heat in a small sauce pan melt chopped milk chocolate with 1/2 Tablespoon vegetable oil, stirring until it’s completely smooth. Remove from heat and add cold heavy whipping cream, stir well until it’s evenly combine. Using a spoon spread the ganache onto the cupcakes. If the ganache is to runny place it in the fridge briefly to set before top the cupcakes.

Store in the fridge.






Quick Tip: Store these in an airtight container for up to a week
