Hello and happy friday, foodie friends!
Did you catch my FB Live over on PWC Moms?
I made two summer themed cupcakes! I’m posting the recipe for the Smores cupcakes here, but you can get the pina colada recipe here.
For the S’mores cupcake you will need :
One dozen chocolate cupcakes, baked using your favorite recipe OR a box mix. During the last 5 mins of baking time, insert a marshmallow into center. Continue to bake until melted.
graham crackers (crushed and broken pieces, you choose, for garnish)
Hershey chocolate bars ( garnish )
For the buttercream frosting:
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
4 cups powdered sugar
7oz jar marshmallow fluff
3-4 tablespoons of milk (more for a thinner spreading/piping consistency)
In the bowl of a standing mixer (or large bowl if you are using a hand mixer) cream butter and shortening together. Slowly add powdered sugar, and milk.
Beat ingredients until combined and creamy in texture. Add the marshmallow fluff , continue to beat until incorporated and a good spreading consistency.
You can pipe on with a decorating tip in a piping bag (I used tip 1M) or spread with spatula. You can also scoop on with an ice cream scoop!
Top each with graham cracker pieces/crumbs and one little portion of chocolate bar.
Enjoy this favorite campside treat indoors at your next get together!
