I went in with Treats and Left with a New Title ...

I went to a PTF meeting last night for school and I made treats for the parents.  I wanted to make something very yummy but I couldn't decide between two cupcakes so I made them both!  Heck why not right?  I had a few left over when I left but thankfully there were kids outside that ate them.  I still haven't found that perfect recipe that everyone likes, we'll see what I find next month!

First off I found this S'More Cupcakes on this awesome blog Toni Spilsbury. I tweaked mine a bit and added 4 to 5 mini marshmallow's in the middle before I cooked them!

Ingredients:

  1. flour- 1 1/4 cup
  2. cocoa powder- 1/2 cup, like Hershey’s Cocoa
  3. baking powder- 1 tspn
  4. sugar- 1 cup
  5. butter- 1 stick
  6. milk or dark chocolate- 4 oz., melted in microwave
  7. egg whites- 3
  8. milk- 1 cup
  9. vanilla- 1 tspn
  10. honey graham crackers- quartered, like Honey Maid Honey Grahams
  11. jumbo marshmallows- like Jet-Puffed Marshmallows

Directions:

  1. mix together flour, cocoa powder and baking powder
  2. In standing mixer, cream together butter and sugar
  3. add melted chocolate, egg whites, milk and vanilla; mix together until creamy
  4. slowly add flour mixture until batter forms
  5. bake until toothpick pulls out clean
  6. set timer about five minutes before baking is complete, at 15 minutes
  7. add one graham slice on top of each cupcake then top with a marshmallow
  8. continue baking another 5 minutes until marshmallow is toasted and toothpick comes out clean


Next on my list was to use up some banana's and why not do a Cocoa Banana Cupcakes on Taste of Home's Website.  I had to whip up the frosting towards an end so I didn't have time to pip it all pretty but hey it still was yummy :).

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  4. I have no doubt my ass grew just looking at those pictures. WOMAN! I'm fighting the spread these days. I don't know why, but for some reason I always gain weight in the summer. So weird right? I'm guessing its because I actually have time to find recipes like this AND MAKE THEM! When there is only two people in your house, SOMEONE has to eat it!

  5. Oh I hear ya! Guess who is is in charge of the story adventure at our upcoming VBS? yea...Me. Maybe we should have a support group or something where we meet on a weekly basis and try to find out how we get ourselves in these situations! LOL!!!
