MSC – S’mores Cupcakes!

I. LOVE. S’MORES.

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. Some may call it an obsession.

While most people think of snow and holidays and gift-wrapping once chilly weather arrives, I… think of s’mores.

Once acceptable s’mores weather passes, I make ’em in the microwave: assemble (minus the top graham cracker) and zap it for 10 seconds, top with graham cracker and squish!! Mmmm.

Anywho, you can imagine my childish squealing mature delight at being able to make this along with the MSC group this month.

I made half of the cupcake recipe, full recipe of the ganache and made 1/3 recipe of the 7 minute frosting instead of the marshmallow frosting.

I pulsed graham crackers in my food processor until it was fine, and assumed that this was what Martha meant by ‘graham flour.’ I also tossed a few chocolate chips on top of the cupcakes before they went in the over but they sunk to the bottom. Once they were cool, I cut small circles out of the tops of each cupcake to hold a bit extra ganache. Cus, let’s face it, ganache makes everything better. Topped it with a dollop of frosting. Magnifique!

All I can say is, these bad boys are trouble. A few people have tasted them and that’s the exact same response given by everyone. And I heartily accept that as a compliment 🙂

A huge thank you to Mary Ann from Meet Me in the Kitchen for indulging in my obsession, even though you didn’t know I had one 🙂

    Well, I’ll be….. 🙂 Mine sunk like battleships – I thought it was because of the graham crackers I sub’d for the graham flour! These look really great!!! Love the frosting “topper” – and looks like you have a houseful of s’more lovers! Nicely done!

  2. How did they turn out with graham crackers? I looked on the internet and graham crackers are made out of graham flour but not really. I love all the tweeks you did! The marshmallow topping didn’t really work out for me because of my oven and I didn’t enjoy the cupcakes at all. Maybe next month. Great job! See you next month!

  3. I love s’mores too!! I was disappointed by these cupcakes though – I made another recipe last year that I enjoyed a lot more. Your cupcakes look fab with the 7 minute frosting and I love your idea to cut circles out of the tops to hold more ganache.

    Love the chocolate chips. What a great idea. My sis-in-law liked these but wanted more chocolate. Extra ganache and choco chips sounds perfect. Great job!

  5. Yes they tasted delicious with the cracker crumbs instead of the flour huh? I did the same thing.

    I also love s’mores! Not as much as you, but I relgiously eat them at camping trips. 🙂

    Thanks for baking along!
