S’more Cupcakes

I was making cupcakes to bring to a girl scout event tonight when I realized I didn’t have enough icing. And because I kind of hate icing, and I hate making it even more AND since the girl scouts are the ones given credit for inventing s’mores. I figured s’more cupcakes were the way to go.

Here is my version of s’more cupcakes.  You’ll need chocolate cupcakes.

First I melted some chocolate and put it on top of the cupcake. You could probably substitute chocolate frosting if you wanted but the melted chocolate was YUMMY!

041

Then I dipped the top of the cupcake into a bowl of smashed graham crackers.

042

Then I added half a large marshmallow to the top of the cupcake.  I squirted a little melted chocolate on the bottom of the marshmallow to help it stick to the cupcake.

043

I lined 4-5 cupcakes on a baking sheet.

049

And then I  broiled them, first on one side of the broiler then I switched them to the other side of the broiler until they were nice and brown.

Like so

So easy and yummy!  Just perfect for summer.
