S’mores Cupcakes

So, I’ve had regular s’mores, the pop tart flavor, and created my own little s’mores candy bar…  So why not make it into a cupcake?  Great idea!!

These chocolate cupcakes have mini marshmallows baked inside, along with a graham cracker crumble on top, then covered with chocolate marshmallow creme icing.  Then of course, topped with another little graham cracker and mini marshmallow.  No need for a campfire for these guys!
