There's something about summer and s'mores that just go together. Okay, there's something about fall, spring, and winter too when it comes to these delicious treats, but it's summer campfires that really inspire them. What could be better than melting chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers all gooey and fused together? All of that goodness in a cupcake, of course.
If you have no campfire handy, s'mores cupcakes are the next best thing. Some (my son) may argue they're better than the real thing. Personally, I say ... have both. This easy recipe from Amy's Cooking Adventures is quick and delicious.
After 3 minutes, quickly press down on each marshmallow to cover the top of the cupcake. Turn the oven to broil.
Place the cupcakes in the oven under the broiler. Leave the oven door cracked and watch the marshmallows carefully, you want them to brown, not burn. Once the marshmallows are browned, remove from the oven and let cool.
