I Want S'mores Cupcakes

I decided that I wanted to try a new cupcake recipe. My niece had a birthday coming up so I figured that would be the best excuse to try something out. After researching a couple of recipes I have saved, I decided on S'mores Cupcakes. I found the recipe on one of my favorite cupcake blogs.

Normally the easiest way for me to bake cupcakes is to use a box mix. It has been a while since I have made cupcakes from scratch but I was excited to drag my huge KitchenAid mixer out of the cupboard. The recipe only uses a small amount of flour because it substitutes it with crushed graham crackers. I pulsed chocolate chips to add to the mix, but found that even though the chocolate pieces were small, they still liked to congregate at the bottom of the cupcake. TIP: I recently read that when adding chocolate chips to batter, in order to get them to not sink to the bottom of the batter you should coat them in flour. I am going to give that a try next time.

I made 3/4 of the frosting because I was one egg short. Surprisingly I still had plenty of frosting. I also just used normal sugar, not vanilla sugar. Instead of sprinkling grated chocolate on top of the finished cupcakes I sprinkled more crushed graham crackers and then added a square of Hershey's chocolate.My S'more Cupcakes were a hit! Everyone loved them! The cake had a good graham cracker flavor with just enough chocolate. The "frosting" tasted exactly how a roasted marshmallow would taste (it was actually meringue).

I can't believe that I made these cupcakes on a weekend of a triathlon! I could not fully enjoy one of these lovely cupcakes until I finished my last triathlon of the season, which was the following day (I cut out sugar the week before a race).

Next time
: I am going to try baking one or two cupcakes without a wrapper so that they will look prettier for pictures. Presentation is everything!
