S'Mores Cupcakes Recipe

{I got a little carried away with the photography!}

Thank you, Amy  at All Things Home (adorable blog! Pay her a visit!) for reminding me to post this!  I served these cupcakes last month at my son's 'Great Outdoors' birthday party.  It was too hot for real s'mores, so these cupcakes were perfect!  I searched the web for a recipe and ended up combining several different ones to make these.

S'mores Cupcakes

1 box Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Butter Recipe Fudge Cake Mix
1 1/2 cups Graham Cracker crumbs
5 tablespoons butter, melted
Semi-sweet Chocolate Chip Morsels
Hershey Bars
Frosting
1 jar marshmallow creme (7 oz)
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 or 2 tsp milk

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners.  In a bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and butter (you can add 1/4 cup sugar to this if you want the crust a bit sweeter.  I only added the butter.)  Add approximately 1 tablespoon of crumbs to the bottom of each muffin cup.  Use a small circular object to press the crumbs evenly into the bottom of each liner (I used a small juice glass.)  Bake for 5 minutes and remove from the oven.


2.  Add a few semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels on top of the crust in each cup.  This is what I had on hand, but you could use whatever chocolate you have.

3.  Add the cake mixture evenly to the cups, filling each about 3/4 of the way full and bake according to package instructions until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool for about 5 minutes in the pan and then cool completely on a wire rack.

4.  Remove lid and foil from jar of marshmallow creme.  Soften marshmallow creme for easy removal from jar, by placing in the microwave on high for 15-20 seconds.  In a large bowl, beat marshmallow creme, butter and powdered sugar on low speed until blended.  Beat in enough milk, 1/2 tsp at a time, to make desired consistency.  After cupcakes have cooled, pipe frosting on top.

5. You can 'toast' the marshmallow frosting with a kitchen torch or just top with a rectangle of Hershey's chocolate.

Enjoy!

I was just curious how you got your icing thick enough to pipe up. I have attempted these twice now and they taste absolutely delicious and everyone loves them but my icing is really runny. I did not use any milk the second batch I made but still had the same problem. Any tips would be helpful!

Did I miss where you are to make up the Fudge Cake mix? On first read it looks like we are to just sprinkle the cake mix from the box onto the crust layer. I assume we are to first make up the cake mix (need to add cake mix ingredients to the ingredients list)and then put the batter on the crust.
