THE RECIPE

S’Mores Muffins

Campfire cupcakes in your kitchen

S'Mores Cupcakes with graham cracker crumbs, chocolate chips, and a toasted marshmallow filling

Warm summer days. Cool, crisp evenings. And the crackling sound of campfires burning away. For us, this scene brings to mind one thing…s’mores! Even if you can’t toast marshmallows over an open fire, thanks to blogger and newly minted author Stephanie Wise, you can recreate the flavors of your favorite s’mores at home…and for breakfast. From her new eCookbook Quick Bread Love, this recipe for S’Mores Muffins incorporates toasty graham cracker crumbs and chocolate chips right into the batter along with a layer of marshmallow creme in the middle for a decadent, gooey breakfast treat with no fire required.

S’Mores Muffins

From the Quick Bread Love eCookbook

Yield: 12 muffins

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup fine graham cracker crumbs (about 4 crackers)
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup marshmallow crème

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease the bottoms and sides of 12 regular-size muffin cups.
  2. In a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, stir together flour, graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt until combined. In a separate large bowl, whisk together milk, oil, vanilla and eggs until smooth.
  3. Pour milk mixture into flour mixture; stir until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips until just combined.
  4. Place a heaping tablespoon of batter in the bottom of each prepared muffin cup (so the bottom of each cup is completely covered with batter). Top each with a tablespoon of marshmallow crème, being careful not to let the crème touch the sides of the cups. Fill cups with remaining batter. Top each cup with a few extra chocolate chips, if desired.
  5. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing muffins from pan.
