It wasn't until much later in life that I actually had the combination of graham cracker, chocolate and marshmallow together and from that point on I was hooked. For a while trendy bars were offering up s'mores as a table-side dessert and they always seemed to be a popular item. I mean, what's not to like about s'mores? So it makes sense to offer up a cupcake in this retro flavor.

My son emphatically told me that he wanted the S'mores cupcake, so we tried that one first. It had a chocolate base which sat atop a graham cracker crumb, and was topped with a swirl of hand-toasted marshmallow frosting. The cupcake was moist, chocolatey and delicious! All three flavors blended nicely and did indeed taste a lot like s'mores. The best part was the graham cracker crumb, but there wasn't nearly enough of it. I wanted this to be a stronger flavor, since the crumbly texture meshed so well with that of the light cupcake.
Conclusion - Tasty Treat! I'll definitely be back for s'more.
