S'mores Muffins

These S'mores muffins, with a Graham cracker infused batter filled with marshmallow creme and bittersweet chocolate chips are a fun treat reminiscent of the S'mores you remember enjoying by the campfire.

These S'mores muffins are made with a batter that is almost dough-like in texture, resulting in a muffin that resembles a very soft cookie. 

The batter/dough is filled with a big spoonful of marshmallow creme, sprinkled with large bittersweet chocolate chips, and topped with more of the dough and a few sprinkles of sea salt. 

They puff up quite a bit in the oven but will collapse somewhat while cooling.

Ingredients List:

You will need a cup of Graham cracker crumbs, which you make from approximately 9 full-sized Graham crackers (depending on "shrinkflation" these days). Just pulse the crackers in a mini food processor until you have finely ground crumbs. 

You will also need a cup of all purpose flour, brown sugar, vanilla, an egg, butter, baking powder, and salt. 

You will also need marshmallow creme. In my area, my grocery stores seem to only carry the Jet-Puffed brand, which I used and was totally happy with, but if you can get ahold of Marshmallow Fluff, definitely try it. I hear it's a little creamier. You can also make your own marshmallow creme if you are adventurous. King Arthur Baking has a recipe

Finally, you will need bittersweet chocolate chips (60% cacao). I love the extra large ones from Ghirardelli. 

I finished these muffins with a light sprinkling of flaked sea salt.

How to make these Muffins:

First, whisk together the Graham cracker crumbs, the flour, salt, and baking soda in one bowl. 

In another bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla. 

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula until just combined. 

After reserving some of the batter/dough, divide the rest of it among the cavities of a muffin pan. Dollop each with a heaping tablespoon of the marshmallow creme and sprinkle each with some of the bittersweet chocolate chips. 

Finally, divide the reserved batter among the prepared muffins and bake.

To remove these muffins from the pan while keeping them intact, let them cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, run a thin knife around the edges of the muffins and, one-by-one, gently nudge them out of the tilted pan and onto a wire rack. 

These s'mores muffins are wonderful both warm and at room temperature. If you need to rewarm them to get the marshmallow creme and chocolate chips all melty again (my favorite way to enjoy these), just give them a  20 second spin in the microwave and serve with a fork. 

If you are serving these for dessert, a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top would be amazing.

There's a reason why s'mores are iconic. Maybe it's childhood memories, just the combination of flavors, or perhaps the melty chocolate and marshmallow mess they make... or it's the combination of all of these things. Seriously, one of my favorite podcasts, The Sporkful, has six segments on the topic of s'mores! 

Who doesn't remember roasting marshmallows on the ends of deconstructed wire hangers and smashing them between layers of Graham crackers and pieces of a Hershey Bar. How charred did you let your marshmallow get? How long did you wait until the chocolate melted before you took your first bite? 

The first recipe for s'mores first appeared at least 95 years ago in a Girl Scout guidebook and was named "Some More" (source, Food and Wine).
