How to Make S’mores Cupcakes

How to Make Chocolate Cupcakes

  • Step One: Preheat oven to 350°F and line a cupcake tin with cupcake liners. Set aside.
  • Step Two: In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking soda, cocoa, and salt. Set aside.
  • Step Three: In a medium mixing bowl, combine both sugars and butter. With an electric mixer, cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating for 30 seconds after each addition. Add the vanilla extract and stir until well incorporated.
  • Step Four: Add ½ of the dry ingredients and ½ cup of milk. Mix on low speed until well incorporated. Repeat with the rest of the dry ingredients and the remaining ½ cup milk. Mix on low speed until well blended.
  • Step Five: Fill cupcake liners ⅔ full and place in oven. Bake for 15-18 minutes (rotate halfway through) or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • Step Six: Place cupcake pans on wire racks to cool for 20 minutes. Remove cupcakes from the pans and place them directly on the wire racks to cool completely (at least one hour).

Ingredients for Chocolate Frosting

  • Step One: In a medium bowl, cream the butter with an electric mixer. Gradually, add the milk and icing sugar (alternating) and beat on low speed until well incorporated. Add the cocoa powder and beat on low speed for an additional minute. Add the vanilla extract and mix on medium-high speed for 3-4 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  • Step Two: Add frosting to a pastry bag with a tip (or use the Ziploc bag method) and frost the cupcakes. I used a Wilton 1M tip.

Ingredients for S’mores Garnish

  • Step One: Drizzle marshmallow sauce, sprinkle mini chocolate chips and mini marshmallows on top cupcakes; top with a piece of graham cracker and Hershey’s chocolate bar. Drizzle Hershey’s chocolate sauce all over on top. Makes 18 regular cupcakes or 10 jumbo cupcakes.

    If stored in an airtight container at room temperature, S’mores Cupcakes should be good for 3 days. You can also store them in the fridge as well for 5 to 6 days in an airtight container.

    Can I Freeze?

     I don’t recommend freezing S’mores cupcakes after they have been decorated. You can freeze just the cupcakes (without the icing or garnish) if you like for up to 3 months.
