  • Chef notes

    I am a huge lover of coffee and brownies ... and a super fan of s'mores. This dessert is what happens when you put two incredible recipes together. The best part? You don't even need a campfire to enjoy this delicious treat. 

    Technique tip: Adding the extra eggs to the brownie mix gives it a more cake-like texture.

    Preparation

    Preheat oven to 350 F. Line muffin tins with cupcake liners.

    For the graham cracker bottom:

    In a medium bowl, mix together all ingredients.

    To assemble:

    1.

    Spoon 2 tablespoons of the crumbly cracker mixture into the bottom of each cupcake liner.

    2.

    Spoon the brownie batter evenly into each cupcake liner, filling each liner about 3/4 of the way full.

    3.

    Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out almost clean. Set aside to cool before decorating. 

    For the chocolate-marshmallow frosting:

    In a bowl using a hand mixer, combine the softened butter, cream cheese, cream, cocoa powder and marshmallow cream. Gradually add in the powdered sugar. Mix until smooth and creamy.

    Transfer the frosting into a plastic zip-top bag and snip the tip off of one corner.

    To decorate: 

    Pipe frosting onto cupcakes and embellish with a few mini marshmallows and a piece of your favorite chocolate candy.
