The recipe for these cupcakes is the same as you see on the S'Mores Cake Recipe post. In the interest of not repeating myself too much, I'm going to let you link back to that for the recipes and how-to. (Let me know in the comments if you'd rather I just post the whole recipe here. I never know which is the better way to go??)

*Note: You could also use a doctored chocolate cake mix if you want to save a step.
Preheat the oven to 350-degrees (F), and prepare cupcake pan(s) with liners for 2 dozen cupcakes.
** You may want to use "greaseproof" or the sliver liners so that you can't see the grease from the crust."
graham cracker crust. Scoop about 1 Tbsp. into each cupcake. Using a small glass (I've found a Mizzou shot glass to work best- but any shot glass would probably work), compact the crumbs into a crust.
chocolate cake batter into the cupcake liners over the crust. Remember that the crust takes up a little extra space, so use a little less batter than you usually do.
Bake at 350-degrees for 15-18 minutes. Remove from the oven to cool on a cooling grid.
marshmallow icing on top of the cupcakes. Use a kitchen torch or the broiler to toast the tops of the icing.
*Note #1: You can see that the icing was a little soupy. That's because I let it sit for a few hours before piping it. Don't do that. Whip the icing shortly before you pipe it.
**Note #2: The broiler works perfectly for these cupcakes. (I have a picture somewhere that shows my nephews and me sitting, staring at the oven, waiting for the cupcakes to toast on my sister's birthday. I love that picture!)

One note about the graham crackers, they will get mushy after a few hours, so don't add them if you're not serving the cupcakes right away-- or just warn people.
