My friends asked me to make cupcakes like they normally do. Only difference is that this time I remembered to take pictures! And being the summer and the 4th of July I decided to make S'more cupcakes. I do have to say though that I do not like s'more cupcakes with a chocolate cake base. Lots of people do, but I am not one of those people. So these little guys have a graham cracker cake base with melted chocolate on top and a marshmallow buttercream frosting. Then I put chunks of chocolate and little marshmallows on the frosting. They ended up tasting really good but I was a little disappointed that my apartment was too warm so my frosting wasn't doing what I wanted and looked deflated. Oh well, as long as they taste good, right?  Smiley

I put a square of chocolate on top when they came out of the oven so it got soft. I then spread it around and let it finish cooling.


And they are topped and ready to be eaten!

Yum!!! I too, have been looking for a good smore cupcake recipe without a chocolate base. I'm a little confused on the layers of the cupcake.  You used a graham cracker base but what did you use for the actual cake?  And I see you put the chocolate on top of the cupcake.  Did you put the buttercream directly on top of the chocolate?  Thank you!

From the photos of the melted chocolate layer, it looks to be just a yellow cake which to me makes the most sense due to it's more dull taste.
You can add the butter cream to the chocolate layer however, I would let it rest first until the chocolate comes back together or else that would be super difficult.

also, for warm weather frosting I use this
    1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter softened
    1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
    4 cups (approx. 1 lb.) confectioners' sugar sifted
    2 tablespoons milk
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
the shortening and extra corn starch will help stabilize everything (due to shortening having a higher melting point) it is also recommend to use Cream Of Tarter but the amounts allude me at this time.

anyhow, great job on these.

Hey jl409 just to answer your questions, I first put a layer of graham crackers with a little butter on the bottom of each cupcake. The cake itself also has graham cracker in that too.

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs, about 2-3 whole grahams
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
350 for about 20 minutes

For on top of the cake, I put a piece of chocolate on right away until it got soft and spread it around. I then let them cool completely before adding the marshmallow buttercream.
The cupcakes are not ones with picture perfect domes but the taste is there.  Smiley
