Last weekend my neighbors had us over for one big BBQ before school started. Toward the end of the evening, the fire pit was lit and the marshmallows were brought out. It was S’more time!!!
I couldn’t tell you the last time I had a s’more. It had probably been years, to be honest. At first, I wasn’t going to eat one… I was just going to let the kids enjoy it and watch. But, then my wonderful husband roasted the perfect marshmallow. You know… golden on the outside, soft and gooey on the middle… perfect. And, I wanted it. So, I made him give it to me… smushed next to a hunk of Hershey’s chocolate inbetween two graham crackers.
First bite. Heaven. Why don’t we make these more often? I ended up eating two whole s’mores. Yeah. I know, why did I stop at two? haha But… all this s’more goodness got me to thinking about making a s’mores cupcake. One last tribute to the summer, the neighborhood bbq’s and the amazing deliciousness that is graham cracker, chocolate and marshmallow.
So… this cupcake was born. The “End of Summer S’mores Cupcake.” It’s simple in it’s ingredients. Graham cracker crust, my favorite chocolate cake topped with toasted marshmallow frosting and garnished with a chunk of graham cracker and chocolate… but the flavor is all s’mores!! YUM!
Before the summer is over… make these for your family or neighborhood friends. One last tribute to summer and all it’s fun!
Left over marshmallow frosting and chocolate? Make real s’mores!
