Wait - August already?! Where does the time go?!
Cupkins is a monthly collaboration between a collaboration between Meg over at Mega•Crafty and I. Each month I share a cupcake recipe and Meg shares a muffin recipe - with the same theme or ingredient. This month our theme is "Camping"
Joanne's S'Mores Cupcakes and Meg's Trail Mix Muffins!
Ingredients: 1 box of chocolate cake mix, 1 cup of water, 1/2 cup of butter, 3 eggs, mini marshmallows
Frosting: 1 stick of butter, 2oz semi sweet chocolate, 16oz powdered sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, 1/3 cup of milk
Decoration: Mini Hershey bars, mini marshmallows, graham crackers
How To: Combine all of the cupcake ingredients in a mixer on low speed and mix until combined. Line each cupcake wrapper with a small amount of batter, a layer of mini marshmallows, and more batter. Don't fill more than about 3/4 full.
Bake at 350 for about 14 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. Allow to cool completely BEFORE taking out of the pan. These aren't your average cupcakes - they are smooshy and gooey and melty - you may need a knife to help you get them out of the pan once cooled.
While cupcakes are cooling, combine cut-up butter and semisweet chocolate in a pan over low heat until smooth (stir constantly) - then add the cocoa powder. Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the powdered sugar and milk alternately, beating with a mixer until fluffy.
Using a palette knife, frost cupcakes. Again - doesn't need to be pretty - we're going for the messy "smooshed" s'more look here!
Garnish with graham cracker crumbles, a piece of chocolate, and some s'more (ha ha!) marshmallows. Enjoy! Have your napkins handy!
