Cupcake Wars on the Food Network. As I watched for awhile, one of the contestants was baking a S'more flavored cupcake. I thought that was a cleaver idea, but didn't think too much else about it and the show really didn't give a recipe. Well a week ago I needed a dessert so I thought, and thought and for some reason those cupcakes came to mind, but I didn't exactly have time to bake something up from scratch. So I opened a box of cake mix and the following is how I made my own version of a S'more Cupcake which was inspired by this show. (Now before I go any further I have to tell you, I am still not bitten by the cupcake bug fad even though I have blogged twice about cupcakes :) but sometimes they are so darn cute I can't help myself.)
After the cupcakes were iced I drizzled chocolate on top (mostly to make it look cute)
Then I topped them with a marshmallow and torched it to give it that roasted look. I must say the taste of the toasted marshmallow was probably the best part.
Want to know what else I do to save time around my kitchen?? I can. Stop by next week for my "Canning Week Blog Party" where we will be posting lots of tips, recipes, linky parties and give-a-ways all related to canning. And find out how one day of canning in the summer saves me lots of time and resources all winter long.
