Day 46 – S’mores Cupcakes

15 Sep

Yes.  Another S’mores Cupcake (recipe below from Your Cup of Cake).  And, I can guarantee, this won’t be the last.  There are so many S’mores recipes.  And, lucky for us, there are so very many days left…

Chocolate-Cupcake     Mini-Chocolate-Cupcake

The cakes have a good density and moistness.  Nice chocolate taste.  Not too dark or rich.   The graham cracker at the bottom is really crumbly when you eat it.  Not a bad thing, just an FYI really.

Marshmallow-Filling     Filled-Cupcake     Filled-Mini-Cupcake

The filling is between a glaze and a buttercream.  It’s more cream cheese than marshmallow, but it’s not overly sweet either.


This frosting is good and thick, almost like cookie dough.  It’s not overly sweet.  The graham cracker cuts the sugar a lot.  (Note: Make sure you really grind the graham crackers.  I had a few chunks left which made it a little hard to pipe.)

Smores-Cupcake     Mini-Smores-Cupcake

The balance is yummy!!  All 3 parts are super tasty, though not 100% like a S’more.  It’s kinda like an adult S’more – more flavor & less sugary.

Scoring Sheet:

– Cupcake Taste: 3.5

– Frosting Taste: 4.5

– Overall Taste: 4.5

– Appearance: 4.5

– Ease of Making: 3.5

– TOTAL: 20.5

    I made these yesterday and they are amazing! I’m not even the biggest s’mores fan. I love all the individual components of a s’more, but generally prefer them separate (I love eating roasted marshmallows straight from the skewer, no additions needed). These cupcakes were the opposite: The individual components were great, but together, they were superb!

    When I write my post about them (I still have to post about last week’s cupcakes first…I know, I’m slacking), I’ll be sure to give your blog a shoutout! Thanks for the recipe and can’t wait to try more!

      That would be great! Thanks, Stephanie!! I totally agree about S’mores. While I do LOVE the combo, I don’t always love it in cupcake form. So I get really excited when there’s a S’mores cupcake that’s really good!
