Instructions

For the chocolate cupcakes with graham cracker crust

  • Heat the oven to 325°F degrees and add cupcake liners to a cupcake pan.
  • In a small bowl, add together the crust ingredients and mix well. Press about 2 tbsp of the mixture into the bottom of each mini cupcake liner.
  • Bake crusts for 5-8 minutes or until lightly golden brown. When done, remove from the oven and set aside. Reduce the oven temperature to 300°F degrees.
  • To make the cupcakes, add all the dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk together.
  • Add egg, buttermilk, and vegetable oil to the dry ingredients. Mix well.
  • Add vanilla and boiling water to the mixture. Mix well.
  • Pour batter into mini cupcake pan, filling a little more than halfway, and bake for about 18-20 minutes.
  • Set the cupcakes on a wire rack to cool.

For the marshmallow frosting

  • Mix together the egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar in a heatproof bowl.
  • Put the bowl over a pot of boiling water or a double boiler. Whisk the mixture until the sugar dissolves and when a thermometer reads between 120 and 140 degrees. Remove from the heat. Add in vanilla extract.
  • Using the whisk attachment on a stand mixer, beat the mixture on low speed, gradually increasing to high for 5 to 7 minutes or until stiff, glossy peaks form.
  • Once the cupcakes are cool, pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes.

For the decorations

  • Drizzle melted chocolate on top of the cupcakes. Sprinkle crushed graham crackers as well. Enjoy!
