    March 24, 2013 by Emily

    Do you wanna S’more?

    I haven’t had anything yet, so how can I have some more of nothing?

    You’re killing me Smalls!


    Ok, Ok, Ok I “tortured” my students last week by FORCING letting them watch “The Sandlot” and this has been bouncing around in my head for days. And now I NEED S’mores…Who doesn’t love S’mores?! A person who doesn’t love s’mores is a person who doesn’t love life! Fine, that might be a bit severe, but what’s not to love?

    While camping season is still a whiles a way for this girl, getting my S’mores fix is not. These  cupcakes are a perfect way to get a S’more fix, especially when there’s no fire around!

    What you’ll Need:

    Make 12 Cupcakes:
    1 sleeve of graham crackers, 8 in total
    4 tablespoons melted butter (I was out today and used equal parts coconut oil, just as good!)
    3/4 cup flour
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 cup cocoa powder
    2 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1/4 cup coffee
    1/2 cup milk
    1 egg
    1 tablespoon vanilla

    1/2 recipe of “7 minute frosting”, I use Martha’s becuase why mess with perfection?!



    Preheat over to 350 degrees, and place paper or silicone liners into a cupcake pan.

    1 – In the bowl of a food processor crush the graham crackers and add the butter, or coconut oil, until combined. It should look sandy but stick together a bit when pressed. 2 – scoop about 1 tablespoon of the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of each cupcake liner, use your fingers or the bottom of a shot glass to press the mixture down. 3 – Mix the wet ingredients a set aside 4 – In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients until evenly distributed, add the wet ingredients and stir until just combined 5 – fill each cupcake liner with the batter until 3/4 of the way full then sprinkle with the remaining graham cracker mixture. 6 – bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cupcake comes out clean. 7 – Make the 7 minute frosting while the cupcakes are cooling . 8 – Pipe of top each cupcake with a decent amount of frosting and enjoy!!
