S'Mores Cupcakes

I decided the other day that I wanted to attempt the S'mores Cupcakes from the Martha Stewart Cupcakes book. I'm not sure why but my cupcakes were more of a blonde color then a dark chocolate as shown in her book. I wasn't a complete fan of the cupcake and maybe it was because I used the only Graham flour that I could find which was Bob's Red Mill Graham Flour, which was a whole wheat variety. Well after all is said and done, the teenagers that I made them for ate them all, so overall I think they were a success.

Creaming the butter and sugar together

Yummy, I think this is always my favorite part of baking.

See in the picture, they appear to have cocoa in them, but no where in the directions does it call for cocoa. I'm using the pampered chef big scoop, which I love for cupcakes.

All pretty and ready for the oven.

Making the chocolate ganache for the filling.

So sily smooth, yum...yum.

Now making the marshmallow topping. This was real marshmallows after it setup, I think I'm more of a marshmallow cream fan for S'Mores Cupcakes.

Filling with the fabulous Chocolate filling.

I let them set up for a little bit before adding the marshmallow topping.

Done! I couldn't find my husbands torch so I couldn't make them with the brown edges.
