a fun cupcake twist on the classic S’ more
I never would have found this recipe if I had a digital cooking timer on the counter. Our new oven, from our recent kitchen remodel, intimidates me. And, the built-in digital timer is a p.i.t.a to operate. So I read anything within arms reach during the last 3 minutes of oven time. In those minutes I stumbled upon the S’ more cupcake recipe on the side of Betty Crocker’s chocolate fudge cake box.
Just stick with me. I always try to bring you back with me to the point of my story.
If I did not have a persnickety oven timer I never would have had the time to read the S”more cupcake recipe.
Instead, I would have watched Frasier reruns on the new Peacock network.
I set a few cupcakes aside to make this twist on the classic S’ more.
The best part was I almost had all the ingredients from a S’more filled summer.
S’ more Cupcake Recipe Details
I substituted the white frosting with a batch of buttercream frosting.
I forgot about this step (until just now) that the white frosting was supposed to be combined with 1/3 cup marshmallow creme.
Oops! I bet that is why I opted to make my own frosting.
I don’t love the marshmallow creme out of the jar so it worked out just fine. Don’t tell Betty.
I totally missed that ingredient and just went on my merry way to frost a dozen cupcakes with my favorite buttercream frosting.
If you follow my baking segments (recipes) for a minute you know my recipes tend to go off the rails.
Just ask my sister!
These cupcakes were easy to prepare and frost.
The crushed graham crackers and chopped chocolate disguised by sloppy frosting skills.

P.S. This recipe could easily be adapted if you are one of those bakers who need to whip out all of the ingredients to make what Betty Crocker combined into one convenient bag. If you want to know the history of the Betty Crocker brand this is a short read.
I love to make cakes from scratch like this new favorite chocolate cake.
