Simply the best S'mores Cupcakes for summer (or anytime really)!
Who doesn't love s'mores in the summer?! They're iconic and reminiscent of hot summer nights around a campfire.
Over the last couple of years, we've been spending time at my sister's house in the Catskills at the end of summer and s'mores are always on the list of must-haves!
The kids love 'em and us adults love 'em because they are a simple, delicious dessert that requires very little effort - save for lots of cautions about getting too close to the fire or poking one's eye out with the marshmallow roasting sticks. But, no one's lost an eye just yet, so it's all good.

S'mores for Dessert all Summer long
For Mother's Day this year, I decided to bake up a batch of S'mores Cupcakes. We've had a long, cold and snowy winter here in the northeast and just a couple of weeks ago it started looking like Spring had finally arrived.
So, I wanted to soak up as much of the warm weather feel as possible. These treats did the trick!
And, the best part was that I got to use my kitchen torch - yay! My sis Robyn got me the torch for Christmas recently and I look for reasons to use it.
I learned on this one to be careful because it's easy to burn the cupcake liners (thank goodness no one was watching when that happened...), but getting that charred, crispy top on the marshmallow frosting was the icing on the cake in this recipe (pun totally intended).
