Summer is coming to a close, but not before I share my Strawberry S’mores Cupcakes!
I was compensated by Campfire® Marshmallows for my time in developing this recipe and post but all opinions are my own! And I was so happy when Campfire® reached out to me! I have been using their marshmallows all summer long and just couldn’t get enough! I would sometimes just have a few plain from the bag as my nighttime treat
Let’s talk mallows. Marshmallows that is. I’m all for saving a few pennies and buying generic on most products, but not my marshmallows! Seriously. Campfire® mallows are just that good! They’re soft and fluffy all the way through and when you roast them… oh my! And it’s okay if you don’t have a fire pit out back, because I’m going to teach you how to perfectly broil your marshmallows in the kitchen! Some people think they taste even better from the oven and not over a fire!
These cupcakes have a graham cracker crust at the bottom, chocolate cake, strawberry frosting, chocolate sauce and that toasted marshmallow on top!
The broiled marshmallows on top are really the star here. The inside of the marshmallow stays soft and gooey for hours after so it really does feel like you’re on a decadent camping trip.
Marshmallows help to make my favorite treats but also can be added to fruit salads and a million on things! I was shocked when I checked out Campfire®’s recipe page! Ice cream with marshmallows? Who knew!?!
There are even Ghostbusters marshmallows! How fun would it be to bring those to a s’mores party? It’s hard to impress little boys sometimes, but that would definitely do it! The Facebook page has some photos of those!
This recipe calls for freeze dried strawberries which I love using because you get so much more flavor and natural color as opposed to using fresh berries because fresh berries have a lot of moisture in them so you can’t add too much! My Strawberry Frosting post has step by step photos for using them and where to get them!
