Smores cupcakes

So I have been saving this recipe. I made it for the young women at a camp activity perfect right? Well we went camping last week and camping just calls for smores, but these are more delicious and it made me want these yummy cupcakes instead! And my kiddos were so pooped they didn't even roast marshmallows, party poopers (ya it was that full of a day! We could not even entice them out of bed!) Save the camping trip and try these? Have fun and try them!


1 box chocolate cake mix (plus all mix ingredients, nothing fancy here)

1 sticks of butter at room temp

3 cups powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

one 16 oz tub of marshmallow cream ( I liked more about 4 to 6 more ounces)


bake cupcakes as usual using directions on box.
for frosting

cream the butter on high until it's light and fluffy.

add the powdered sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, and beat until fluffy each time.

beat in the vanilla until incorporated.

dump in the Fluff and mix it up until it's all creamy.

transfer to pastry bag and pipe onto cupcakes.
 to frost use a large star tip fitted onto pastry bag,
hold tip in center of cuppie and squeeze a generous amount of frosting,
pull tip up and release pressure forming a hershey kiss shape.
or option 2 is use same lg star tip and swirl from outside in working your way up.

dust tops with graham cracker crumbs and a square of Hershey's chocolate.
(I'm working on an alternate recipe that has a baked graham crust like cheesecake, then a baked cake on top! don't hold your breath it might be a while!)

you may need to add more sugar so just be sure to taste the frosting before frosting the cupcakes.Also I added extra fluffy whip and loved it. This is a big to taste recipe.
