S’mores Cupcakes have all the classic flavors we love in a moist chocolate cupcake with a graham cracker crust, marshmallow filling, and milk chocolate frosting.

S'mores Cupcakes

I have officially joined the s’mores craze. I don’t know why it took me so long. What’s not to love about rich chocolate, crunchy graham crackers, and sticky marshmallows?

There is something irresistibly nostalgic about s’mores in the summertime. S’mores Cupcakes are the newest way I’ve found to enjoy the classic s’mores flavors.

S’mores Cupcakes

This recipe begins with a graham cracker crust for our favorite chocolate cupcakes.

Then the cupcakes are filled with marshmallow fluff and topped off with silky milk chocolate frosting and a dusting of graham cracker crumbs.

These are the perfect little deserts for the times this summer when you wish you could have a classic campfire, but can’t.

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • ½ cup butter softened slightly
  • cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup, plus 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • cup all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt

FROSTING INGREDIENTS

  • ¾ cup butter softened
  • cup cocoa powder
  • 3 cups powdered sugar give or take
  • 2-4 tablespoons milk or cream

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line cupcake tins with cupcake liners. In a small bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, 3 T of sugar and 4 T of butter.
  • Press a scant tablespoon of the graham cracker crumb mixture into the cupcakes liners.
  • Boil 1 cup water in microwave. Whisk in cocoa and vinegar until smooth. Let cool.
  • Meanwhile, in a stand mixer, beat 1 stick butter for 4 to 5 minutes on high speed. Add the sugar and beat for another couple minutes. Add the oil and eggs, mixing well. Stir in the cocoa mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda. Add to the mixer and mix until just combined. Fill lined cupcake tins about 2/3 full.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until they spring back when lightly touched. Cool completely on wire racks.

  • To make the frosting, beat the butter until smooth. Beat in 3 cups of powdered sugar until smooth. Add enough of the milk to reach the right consistency for spreading or piping. Add salt to taste.
  • Frost the cupcakes and sprinkle with additional graham cracker crumbs if desired.
