Choosing one dessert amongst our many favorites can be tortuous, but luckily with this recipe you don’t have to. Meet the BROWNIE S’MORES CUPCAKE! Fudge brownie cupcake topped with perfectly roasted marshmallow and a melting chocolate square!
Whoooaaa, right?! My kids will love me forever (they even said it!). Next day after I made these yummy-licious brownie s’mores cupcakes, I had a house full of teens asking if I had any left for them to try. Those instagramers are hard to hide from, lol. So I made a another batch, and another batch, and the rest is history 🙂
Step 1. fudge brownie
I totally got lazy on this one and went for the boxed stuff. First of all there are a lot of great brownie mixes out there (I used Whole Foods brand 365 brownie mix). Second, it’s summer time and I honestly don’t want to spend that much time in the kitchen. Lastly and most important, I really wanted this recipe to be easy enough that EVERYONE can do it. I have teens, and the idea is for them to be able to whip up a batch when their friends come over.
Follow instruction on brownie box. Cook for a few minutes shorter than recommended times. Remove from oven and follow next step instructions.
Step 2. marshmallows
Immediately switch oven to broil. Place a large marshmallow on top of each brownie and return to oven. Broil for up to 2 minutes or until S’mores are perfectly roasted.
Remove from oven and rest on a cooling tray.
Step 3. chocolate
Last step is to put your chocolate squares on top of the perfectly roasted marshmallows and press down gently. You can use any chocolate you like, milk, dark, with filling, nuts… whatever!
Let it rest for 3-5 minutes and serve while warm.
