Summer is officially on its way! Camping, boating, tanning, swimming and relaxing are just a few of my favorite things to do! Growing up, I absolutely loved making S’mores around the campfire (well, I still love making them!!). My mom is the master of the perfect marshmallow: golden brown color, crispy on the outside, and melted on the inside; just the right temperature to melt the chocolate on your graham cracker sandwich. Of course, this requires a campfire filled with a bed hot coals so you don’t light your marshmallow on fire…and I was never very patient waiting for this moment. So, this got me to thinking, there must be another way!

My solution!? Cupcakes of course! These delicious S’mores cupcakes are topped with marshmallow cream frosting and a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs. The cake is made from a rich chocolatey batter and a graham cracker crust. These cupcakes can bring you back to one of your favorite camping moments without having to wait for those perfect coals (or burnt and crispy marshmallows). These will be perfect for your next camping trip or next BBQ/ summer celebration.

Place unsweetened chocolate, 1/2 cup milk, brown sugar and 1 egg yolk into the bowl on top of the pot. Stir until thick and smooth. Remove from heat and set aside.

6. On low speed, add flour mixture in three parts, alternating with milk mixture in two parts, beat until smooth. Then add chocolate mixture, mix just until combined.

7. Using clean beaters, whip egg whites for 2-3 minutes until size triples and whites are stiff but not dry. Fold into to cake batter.

8. Using a blender or food processor, pulse graham crackers into fine crumbs until you have about 1.5 cups. Separate 1/2 cup crumbs and aside for sprinkling on top of the finished cupcakes. Then, using a fork, mix 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs with 6 tablespoons of melted butter; mixture will look clumpy.
