S’more deliciousness in a Cupcake form. A soft and fluffy Graham cracker cupcake filled with chocolate ganache and topped with a soft fluffy decadent marshmallow frosting.
I have a base vanilla cupcake recipe I like to use for everything. When I decided to make S’more cupcakes I thought about doing a chocolate cupcake then decided to try something unique – a graham cracker cupcake!
I ground up graham crackers and added them to the cupcake – I wasn’t sure it would work but dang they turned out amazing!
The rest was easy – I knew I wanted to use Marshmallow frosting so that left the filling for the chocolate portion of this dessert. I make Ganache all the time so that was an easy choice for the filling.
You can use a cupcake corer or I just use a large frosting tip – press down into the cupcake, twist and pull back out! Then fill with soft chocolate ganache.
So the key to filling a cupcake with ganache is to do a 1.5 to 1 ratio (vs then normal 2:1 ratio I typically do) – This will make it so it doesn’t set too firm, but soft, so you can bite into it easily but it’s still rich!
