Sunshine S’mores Cupcakes

First, I have no idea why these are “Sunshine” S’mores Cupcakes. For me, they’re just S’mores Cupcakes.

I made these because I had 1/2 jar of Marshmallow Creme left from making S’mores Bars. These were pretty good, but not nearly as good as the Bars!

They did provide some cute photos, though…

S’mores Cupcakes
(Allrecipes)

1 (18.25 oz) French Vanilla cake mix
2 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 cups water
3 egg whites
24 milk chocolate candt kisses
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 (7 oz) jar marshmallow creme

Directions
– Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line 24 muffin cups with paper liners
– In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, 2 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs, water, and egg whites
– Beat for 2 minutes at high speed of an electric mixer
– Divide the batter evenly among paper-lined cups, filling about 2/3 full
– Place a chocolate kiss in each cupcake, pressing in lightly
– Spoon 1 teaspoon graham cracker crumbs onto each cupcake
– Bake at 250 degrees F for 18 to 25 minutes (Mine took exactly 18)
– Remove from oven and top each cupcake with 1 teaspoon marshmallow creme — dip spoon into hot water to prevent sticking
– Return to oven for about 1 minute to melt slightly

Notes:
– For the hot water/spoon trick, I had to dip my spoon in hot water before EVERY spoonful of creme or I got a sticky mess
– I also moistened my fingertips, and that allowed me to scoop the creme out of the spoon and try to arrange it on the cupcakes with minimal stickiness
– These are WAY BETTER warm, so if you have leftovers, just pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds to heat everything up again.
