S'mores cupcakes and recipe

This photo and the recipe below come from our reader Julia L., who got her recipe from Gigi Cakes (who got her recipe from Nabisco). Since my love of all things s'mores knows no bounds, I am all over this. Even neophyte baker that I am, I may make an attempt, perhaps for Saturday's picnic.

1 ½ cups of graham cracker crumbs
½ cup of flour
2 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
½ cup of butter, softened
¾ cup of sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla
¾ cup of milk

In a small bowl combine the crumbs, flour and baking powder; set aside. Beat the butter and the sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time. Beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla. Alternately add flour mixture with milk, beating well after each addition. Divide the batter into two muffin tins lined with 16 cupcake liners total.

Bake at 350F degrees for 22-25 minutes or until done. Cool in pans for 15 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely on a wire rack.

For the icing, I used a vanilla whipped kind, store bought. It has the EXACT consistency as gooey marshmallows. The toppings however, were a bit tricky, but work the work. For the marshmallows, I sprinkled clumps of mini-marshmallows on aluminum foil and toasted them in a regular toaster oven. I watched them until I felt they were browned to my liking, and took them out. I scooped them off the foil and placed them on top of the iced cupcakes. I then drizzled chocolate and added more crushed graham crackers and a small chocolate square, for that campfire effect, of course.

I made these but found them to be very bland. I brought them to NY's Cupcake Camp and they were not well received! But I think with a little salt and maybe some spices like cinnamon, they would be great! They have tons of potential! They definitely look great!

I made these for our July 4th family reunion for the first time. Everyone absolutely raved about them! I only changed things up with the icing - used a homemade vanilla buttercream instead - and I stuck a Hershey's Kiss inside each cupcake before baking. Most people said that was their favorite part. ;) Thanks for the recipe! Your blog has become one of my favorites.
