A recipe for S’mores Cupcakes. S’mores Cupcakes topped with a marshmallow frosting, graham crackers, and chocolate. Did you know that according to wikipedia girl scouts are the ones who invented S’mores? Then you probably also know that once a year the girl scouts sell a bunch of cookies made of deliciousness (my fav is the samoas). So, how did they get to be so awesome at making up sweet recipes? What in the GD hell are they doing out in the wilderness that enlightens them to such a degree that they can come up with things like S’mores? I wanna drink that kool aid.

Smore’s Cupcakes
Makes 24

Devil’s Food cake:
1 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup cake flour
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup low fat buttermilk
½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup strong brewed coffee
2/3 cup semisweet chocolate, melted
1½ teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
marshmallow meringue frosting:
4 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup superfine sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ (4.4 ounce) Hershey bars, broken into 24 pieces
3 graham crackers, cut into 24 pieces

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2. Place all the ingredients for the cupcake batter into a large mixing bowl and whisk together until fully combined.
3. Line a cupcake tin with liners and fill each about ½ way full.
4. Place in the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick come out clean when inserted into the center.
5. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before frosting.
6. Place the egg whites and cream of tartar in an electric stand mixer fixed with a whisk attachment.
7. Beat the egg whites on medium-high speed until light and frothy.
8. Begin adding the sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, until fully incorporated.
9. Add the corn syrup and vanilla and beat until the mixture has become glossy and fluffy and stiff peaks form, about 8 minutes. (if you think the mixture looks glossy but soupy, keep beating!)
10. Scoop the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a round tip and pipe over the cooled cupcakes.

Note: If you don’t want to beat the frosting for a long time, you can shorten the whipping time by dissolving the sugar and lightly whipped egg whites over a double boiler before adding the mixture to a stand mixer.

    I was a girl scout for a loooong time, I can attest to that! I learned a lot, it was like Home Ec in the wilderness ;) What I don’t get is why they taught us to use bleach with our dishes. It was soap bucket, bleach bucket, then water bucket. Years of bleach in the GD woods?! Maybe that’s why I am slightly off – upstairs

    I’ve been wanting to try a s’mores cupcake recipe for a while, yours will be the one. All you other recipes I’ve tried have been home runs so far!

    Look really nice, but the list of ingredients is, to say the least, daunting! Will give it a try though :)

      You can speed this up by using a devils food cake mix instead of making the cupcakes from scratch….although I always think making things from scratch is better. good luck!

    Pure awesomeness!

    I am halfway through making these! Amazing the depth of flavour the Devil’s food cake – the cider vinegar really works!

    Question: what temperature should I have the oven and how long should I put them in, in order to get lovely browning on the frosting?

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Ben! I’m glad you like the devil’s food cake recipe! I actually used a brulee torch to brown my meringue If you don’t have one, I would set your broil to its low setting and brown them that way…BUT please watch them as it only takes a few seconds to brown and they’ll burn if you turn your head for even just a sec. Good luck!

  21. Miki Not Specified Not Specified

    I have to try this recipe! :P

    Have a fun weekend!

  22. Samantha Not Specified Not Specified

    I made these last weekend for some friends – I followed the recipe exactly, but for some reason, the cake was pretty crumbly. Everyone loved the flavor though and the marshmallow frosting was a HUGE hit! Just a quick note though: I only got about 20 smallish cupcakes from this recipe, but enough frosting for 30-40 generously frosted cupcakes.

    Love your site! I don’t know how you guys make this so great each and every day! :)

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Hm…that’s really weird! I’ve had other people make it without a problem. Perhaps you could up the amount of buttermilk by about a 1/2 cup…or coffee if you want a stronger flavor. I also only ended up with about a 2/3 cup extra frosting, but I also piped mine. Did you pipe your frosting on or use a knife/offset spatula?

      Thanks for reading. I’m sorry this wasn’t a great success for you, that’s a huge bummer.

  23. Teddy Big Not Specified Not Specified

    We had tried these when I was still a girl scout and haven’t remembered it till this day. Thanks a lot for the reminder and of course the recipe. Will try to make this on weekend and see if I can redo it just like the old times. Thanks a lot.

    Just made a batch this weekend and they turned out great. The oven broiler tip was a great idea as I don’t have a brulee torch.

    These are great… I made them few times one thing I like to ask is about the topping. It seems come out good. But if they sit out for a while it melts? Is this normal with this sort of topping? Or am I not doing something right?

    No eggs in the cake batter? I see the egg whites for frosting and have read, re-read cake recipe several times searching for egg yolks or whole eggs.
