Chocolate Graham Cracker Cupcakes with Toasted Marshmallow Frosting

I had big plans this weekend to make coconut cream pie but that fell by the wayside when I found this recipe for one of the best looking cupcakes I have ever seen.

The recipe has many steps starting with the bottom crust.

A mixture of crushed graham crackers, sugar and melted butter a pressed into the bottom of the tin and then topped with finely chopped chocolate. This is than baked for about 5 minutes to set the crust and melt the chocolate.


The crust is then topped with the cake batter. The batter is not thick at all, it has the consistency of melted ice cream, which worried me at first but everything turned out well. The batter is topped with the remaining graham crackers and chocolate and then baked.


Next comes the marshmallow frosting. I was a bit nervous about making the frosting but it turned out to be very easy.

I then pipped it on top of the cupcakes (I still need some practice at this) and placed them under the broiler to toast.

The cupcakes are delicious! One thing to note is that the recipe says it makes 2 dozen, when in actuality it could probably make about 4 dozen.
