Smores Cupcake Recipe

For chocolate cupcakes you can use boxed chocolate cake mix like Pillsbury Chocolate or Dark Chocolate, or Betty Crocker Milk Chocolate or Dark Chocolate.

Or you can use my homemade chocolate cupcake recipe mix below….. if I do say so myself, this recipe is the bomb.

    Yum!! And I love those cupcake liners too! If I wasn’t trying to avoid cupcakes and other desserts for the time being I’d definitely try these. Maybe in another month or so. =)

    YUMMY! We’re big smores fans – can’t wait to have the kids help with this one! *Another diet buster due to my lack of self control.

    Real life testimonial…she made them for one of our meetings, and they were delicious! I love marshmallows, so she had me at that. Can’t wait to try the Red Velvet ones!

    Brilliant! So easy and delicious sounding. I’m definitely going to make them.

    you can’t go wrong with s’mores! : ) These look delicious! And, I love that you don’t have to wait for them to cool completely to frost them… as soon as they are cool enough to eat, you can bite into one! : )

    My marshmallows puffed up HUGE and didn’t turn golden :( have you ever experienced this with yours?

    • Toni June 11, 2012 at 6:37 pm #

      Dear Rosicus- wow, would love to see a photo of this! They usually puff for a second, then settle into a nice hardened mold. What type of marshmallows did you use?… not that it really matters because they all should work. How long ago did you bake them? Because it usually takes about 3 minutes for them to “de-puff” and they look really nice afterwards.

    So…Am I the only loser that had some of the marshmallows fall over to the bottom of the oven and caught fire, and most of the rest just fall over onto the pan???? What did I do wrong???? I followed the directions!!!

    • Toni July 14, 2012 at 9:10 am #

      Oh no, Nakia! It sounds like your cupcakes were baked thoroughly before putting the marshmallows on. I set my timer at least five minutes before cupcakes are done so the center is still very soft in the middle, then set each marshmallow on top and it automatically pressed down into the middle uncooked part. Then I let it bake for the remaining 5 minutes until the cupcakes are cooked thoroughly and the marshmallow melts with it. I’m so sorry yours didn’t turn out!

    I set the timer for what should have been 5 minutes before they were done, but they did seem pretty set on top. Maybe they baked faster due to the dark metal cupcake pan I used. I ended up salvaging them by smearing marshmallow fluff on top and putting another graham cracker on top. They were still a hit at the church bake sale. There were a couple that came out pretty like the picture though. Thanks for the great idea! I’ll just set my timer for a little earlier next time. :-)

    My daughter was making these today and we’ve realized the temperature to cook them at doesn’t seem to be in the recipe? Help!

    Some of my marshmallows fell over as well. I put them back together the best I could and then added a piece of chocolate from a Hershey’s bar. That helped make them look more presentable.
