S'more Cupcakes

Hershey bars & graham crackers are on every grocery store endcap this week. It's Memorial Weekend and parties are planned! Want to have them saying "Mmmmm" long before they take a bite? Tell them you made S'more Cupcakes.

My version is super easy and tastes great.
1 Betty Crocker Butter Pecan (trust me) box cake mix (plus the 3 eggs, 1/3 cup Vegetable Oil, and 1 1/2 cups of water - notice that I increased the water from the box instructions)
2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 tubs of chocolate frosting
(Hershey's syrup to enhance frosting, if desired)
Bag of Mini Marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cupcake liners in cupcake pan. Combine the cake mix, eggs, oil, water and graham cracker crumbs. Fill cupcake papers 2/3 full. Bake 17-22 minutes. Cool cupcakes. Frost cupcakes with chocolate frosting (I chose one with Hershey's syrup in it...then added a few extra tablespoons of Hershey syrup for good measure). Top with a sprinkling of mini marshmallows. Give them one and they are sure to want s'more!

I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!
