S'more Cupcakes, Please!

The Summer wouldn't be complete without S'mores! And in this case . . . S'more Cupcakes!! Our 4th of July BBQ Bash was a success, and these S'more Cupcakes were quite the hit! Follow along, I'll tell you how I made these little beauties.

First, I crushed some graham crackers for the delicious crust. To make 24 cupcakes, you'll need about 1 1/2 cups of crushed crackers. (That's about 1 package). Mix the crushed grahams with 1 cup of sugar and 5 tablespoons of butter. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Then, press about a tablespoon of the yummy crumbs into your lined cupcake tins. It's best to press the crumbs down firmly with a shotglass, (preferably one from your wild college years, as seen below). After pressing the crumbs and reminiscing about your wild child days, put the cupcake tin in the oven for about 5 minutes. When they are done in the oven, fill 2/3 of the way with chocolate cake mix. Then, pop them back in the oven until they are finished baking.

After cooling, use an apple corer to remove the center of your cupcakes. I'm sure you'll find something to do with all of those delicious cupcake middles.

Then, fill each hole with marshmallow fluff. I put the fluff in a plastic bag and snipped the corner off. Who needs a fancy pastry bag?

Next, frost with chocolate frosting and decorate.
Then, invite friends over to help you eat these little beauties, because you won't want to be alone in the house with them!
