Inspired by trip down memory lane thanks to "old skool" Pepsi (see prior post), this little darling is perfect for that sugar fanatic. What's better than sitting around a campfire, hopefully with water near by, toasting marshmallows and smushing them between graham crackers and chocolate?!
I am a "feelings" kind of person so now the task was laid before me to transform that feeling into a cupcake. There are 100 to 1 s'more cupcake recipes out there and after searching for one I liked I soon found myself swimming in graham cracker, ganache, and marshmallow creme goodness. Have you ever actually looked for a s'more recipe? If you decide to take on this task I suggest you block out at least 2 hours. Seriously.
Back to the cupcake... I wanted a true graham cracker taste in the cupcake and decided to do a flourless cake, using the graham cracker as the "flour". In theory this was an excellent idea but in reality I was disappointed. The cupcake had an "eggy" taste to it and the consistency was "ew" at best. For the chocolate I made a chocolate ganache and the frosting was marshmallow and cream cheese. My taste testers (AKA the fam) gobbled them up as soon as I gave them the go ahead but this one isn't a winner for me. Back to the drawing board I suppose...
It may have not tasted like I had hoped but it was a very photogenic little fella.
