I Want S'More Muffins!



Would a s'more still be a s'more if it didn't LOOK like a s'more? Huh? Whadya say? Did you ever wonder if you could enjoy the wonderful, chocolate-y, marshmallow-y goodness without a roaring fire and roasting fork? Have your kids ever begged and pleaded to have chocolate for breakfast? Have YOU ever had a craving for some rich, chocolate goodness before 9 a.m.?  duh!! If you answered yes to any of the afore mentioned questions, please continue reading my post for the solution to your problems! :)

These little babies catapulted me right up to "Super Mom" status in my children's eyes when they realized that I was seriously offering them chocolate for breakfast before school. Every bite is bursting with yummy marshmallows, chocolate chips and graham cracker crumbs, and they taste JUST LIKE their namesake, the s'more!! The kids really enjoyed these with a large glass of milk for breakfast and as an after school snack. Needless to say, they didn't last long!

From the heart of my kitchen to yours, may your experience be fun and the food always flavorful. Enjoy!

I Want S'More Muffins

3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
4 teaspoons sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup sour cream
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons 2% milk
1/3 cup milk chocolate chips
6 tablespoons marshmallow creme

In a small bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Stir in sour cream. Combine the flour, graham cracker crumbs, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips.

Coat six muffin cups with cooking spray; fill one-fourth full with batter. Spoon 1 tablespoon marshmallow creme into each muffin cup. Top with remaining batter.

Bake at 400 degrees for 14-16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.

It's for sure still a Smore. My friend makes "Smore bars" that are basically graham crackers, chocolate chips, and marshmallows with copious quantities of melted butter on top. Whoooo man.
