     Do I really have to say more?! I can’t get enough of S’mores! So, more s’mores more s’mores more s’mores!! I love how the marshmallow frosting kind of crust up but still stay moist, fluffy, and creamy in the middle. I was worried that the graham cupcake was going to turn out dry but boy, was I amazed at how moist it turned out!
     
    I love love love these cupcakes that I made for my dear nieces’ birthday party. The marshmallow frosting is actually a Swiss meringue frosting that was so easy to make, although I have to say that my arms did have a pretty good work out from all that whisking.
     
    I used a torch to lightly toast the frosting to give it a little toasty look & taste. If you do not have one, you can carefully toast it on an open flame on your gas stove top or broil under your oven broiler for 1-2 mins, just make sure not to burn it! Or leave it as it is, I promise you that it is just as yummy!
     

    I filled it with Nutella, simply because…. who doesn’t like Nutella right?! Can you see how moist the crumbs of the cake was? Can you tell that I’m getting all excited again? I might have to make another batch soon. Here is how it was made.

    Marshmallow Meringue Frosting
    1. 3 egg whites
    2. 3/4 cup sugar
    3. 1 tsp vanilla extract
    4. pinch of salt
    Marshmallow Meringue Frosting
    1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk your egg whites and sugar together.
    2. Heat bowl over a double boiler (pan with little water simmering over low heat).
    3. Note that your bottom of the bowl should not touch the water!
    4. Whisk constantly while heating the egg whites, we do not want it to be scrambled.
    5. Continue whisking until thermometer reads 160F or 70C.
    6. If you do not have a candy thermometer or instant read thermometer, the mixture should be smooth, meaning all sugar dissolved and hot to the touch.
    7. At this point, remove from heat and bring to stand mixer. Whisk on high until meringue is glossy, formed stiff peaks about 7 mins.
    8. Then add salt and vanilla extract, whisk to combined.
    9. Frost immediately. As frosting cools further it becomes harder to pipe.
    10. Lightly toast frosting with a torch, open stove flame, or broiler.
    11. Top with a piece of chocolate and graham cracker.
