Chocolate Cupcakes with a graham cracker crust and toasted marshmallowy meringue frosting. Oh. my. gosh. These were super duper delicious! I’ve been so excited to make these S’mores Cupcakes for a while now but I didn’t have a kitchen torch to toast the tops. I don’t know why I haven’t bought one before, but I’m super excited that I got one for Christmas. Thanks Mom!
The recipe for these cupcakes is from Jennifer Shea’s new cookbook, Trophy Cupcakes and Parties!  (pssst… I’m giving away a couple of signed books below) Trophy Cupcakes  has several locations in Seattle. You should visit if you get a chance. Such cute shops and the prettiest cupcakes. I visited the shop in Bellevue a few years ago. Adorable!
But the first time I met Jennifer was back in 2008 when we were both on The Martha Stewart Show. What?!?
Yes. Still crazy to me. I was on to show Martha how to make my Cupcake Pops  about six months after I started the blog (P.S. This past Saturday was National Cake Pops Day . YAY!) and Jennifer was on the show to make these same s’mores cupcakes … which I didn’t get a chance to try when I was on the show.
So, I thought they would be the perfect ones for me to make from her new book.
And boy am I glad I did. They are fantastic!
They start with a graham cracker crust for the cupcake. Awesomeness!
Place a teaspoon of the crust mixture in each baking cup.
And press with the bottom of a small glass.
But that’s not all. They get chocolate, too.
Yep. Just sprinkle chopped chocolate on top of the crusts and bake for a few minutes to set first.
Cool and then… fill with the chocolate cupcake batter. YES!
But we can’t stop there. Before baking, sprinkle more graham cracker mixture and chopped chocolate on top. I like where this is going … oh and I’m messy!
Beautifully cupcakes. I actually think they’re great just like this.
But they wouldn’t be s’mores without the fluffy marshmallow frosting.
Swirl the meringue frosting on top of the cupcake with a star tip and then toast using a kitchen torch.
P.S. I love my kitchen torch. This was the first time I’ve used one, and now I want to toast everything. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to get one. So fun!!!
But not as fun as biting into these babies. Yummmm!
Here’s the recipe … and check out Jennifer’s video on MarthaStewart.com  too OR skip down below for the giveaway.
