S’mores Cupcakes

As the weather is getting warmer, I start thinking of spring break and fun things for my family to do over the summer. Immediately my mind turns to trips in our RV visiting favorite spots we’ve found before or discovering new places to explore. With a nine year old leading the itinerary, our evenings usually include sitting by the campfire making s’mores.

Just the thought of it had my son and me in the kitchen making one of our favorite cupcakes that we turn to time and time again for a quick, simple recipe that he loves to help me make – S’mores Cupcakes.

How fun is that?!?

We started with our favorite chocolate cupcakes. Seriously, those things are amazing! Then, we topped them with a large marshmallow and toasted them in the oven for just a bit. Then, we gave them a sprinkling of graham cracker crumbs to finish out the total s’mores cupcake flavor! They are perfect for serving at a party. If not serving immediately, store in an airtight container or under a cake dome. But, just realize that you may start getting requests for them more often than not!

Here’s how we make our S’mores Cupcakes.

  • Prepare chocolate cupcakes and allow to cool.
  • Place a large marshmallow on top of each cupcake.
  • Put into a 350 degree oven for about 2-3 minutes until marshmallow has enlarged.
  • Only allow to brown slightly.
  • Remove from oven.
  • With the palm of your hand, press down on the marshmallow to allow it to spread fully atop the cupcake.
  • Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs.

  2. Delish! My kids would love these.

    And me too!

  3. I do something similar, but I fill my cupcake cups with devil’s food cake batter, then sprinkle the tops with chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and graham cracker crumbs before baking…delish!

  4. We had great plans to make s’mores this weekend, but it never happened. Perhaps it was divine providence so I could make these cupcakes? 🙂

  5. Oh, these look so wonderful! I am totally craving some cupcakes now… It’s always dangerous to read food blogs right before dinner. 🙂

  6. SO cool!! I love these!

  7. S’mores are the best treats for kids (including big kids like me.) I could definitely go for one of these s’mores cupcakes.

  8. Cupcake perfection!!

  9. These cupcakes are so fun – good thing they are not just for camping 🙂

  11. Robyn, these cupcakes look so decadent and absolutely delish! Thanks for sharing your talents in the kitchen. These are a must-try for sure!

  12. What a clever idea! The kids (including myself & My Yanni) will gobble these little delights up!

  13. These look great and far easier than some of the other S’more cupcake recipes I have found. I do have to say that I might be tempted to put them under the broiler to brown them up a bit. I actually like my S’more marshmallows burnt for the real thing.

    • I’ve put them under the broiler for just a short amount of time before, too. They are great with just a touch of golden coloring.

  14. S’mores is one of my favorite parts about camping. 🙂 These cupcakes sound divine!

  17. Love it! So simple to make, but they look so elegant!

  18. Mmmmm, I live for this. How did I just now find this?! I am cooking these tonight.
