Cupcake of the Month - S'mores

Ingredients :
1-Pkg.(18.25oz.) yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1/2 t. vanilla extract
1c. chopped chocolate covered graham crackers
1c. butter, room temp.
1/2c. unsweetened cocoa powder 
2 3/4 c. Marshmallow fluff
1 1/4c. powdered sugar
Marshmallow fluff, plain graham crackers & Halved snack size Hershey bars, optional
Directions : 
Preheat oven to 350*. On med-low speed beat cake mix, 1 1/3 cups water, eggs, oil and vanilla until combined. On med-high speed beat until fluffy, about 2 min. Stir in chopped graham crackers. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups filled with cupcake liners. Bake 15-18 min., or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool 10 min. Transfer to racks and cool completely.
On high speed beat butter until fluffy. Beat in cocoa. Add 2 cups marshmallow fluff and beat on low speed until combined. Gradually beat in powdered sugar until smooth. Set aside.
Transfer remaining fluff to pastry bag fitted with a small round tip (or ziplock bag and cut a corner off). Cut 2" slit into top of each cupcake, pipe fluff into centers. Spread tops with reserved frosting. For garnish, spread fluff over plain graham crackers, top with chocolate bars and set on top of cupcake. Enjoy!

Tips of the day : These cupcakes are very yummy, but they are also quite messy to make! Be sure and reserve yourself about 1 1/2 hour of time when planning on making them. I definitely recommend trying these! 
Wishing you peace, love and chocolate dreams,
