Time for The Tips!

S'more Cupcakes Recipe

  • Let the ingredients come to room temperature. Unless otherwise specified in the recipe, always let all ingredients come to room temperature before baking. This includes dairy products like milk, eggs, butter, yogurt, etc. Because of this, you can be confident that they will blend into the batter with ease and have a superior texture overall. For the most optimal results, take out of the fridge all ingredients thirty minutes to an hour before baking.
  • Be careful with the flour measurement! While a kitchen scale will provide the most precise results, a spoon, and level will work just fine for volume measurements. Toss the flour into the measuring cup after fluffing it up with a spoon. With the back of a knife, level it off after it’s overflowing. You will always get significantly too much flour if you pack the measuring cup. Flour that is not measured correctly might cause baked items to be dry and thick. [Use the same method to measure cocoa powder!”
  • Bring out the oven thermometer! You can’t trust that your oven is actually set to 350 degrees. You can ruin every baked dish, from cakes to macarons, if you haven’t calibrated your oven in a while; it can be off by as much as 30 degrees! If you want to be sure your oven is always hot enough, the simplest and least expensive thing to use is a thermometer.
  • The baking powder you use must be new. Although baking powder is essential for baked goods to rise correctly, I rarely buy it in bulk because of its short shelf life once opened. A little baking powder in some boiling water can show you how fresh your baking powder is. You can use it if it bubbles, but if it doesn’t, you can throw it away.

Storage and Re-Serving Tipe!

Storing and Re-serving tips holds quite a special place when it comes to managing leftovers or making ahead of time when you are so busy with your work and cannot afford to cook at the point these are the tips that are your savior at that time. Let’s know and understand storage tips for this particular recipe a bit better.


  • After the cupcakes have cooled entirely, seal them in a container to maintain their freshness.
  • For further security, you might wrap the container with plastic or foil.
  • If you intend to consume the cupcakes within one or two days, keep them at room temperature. Keep them in the fridge for three or four days if you need to keep them for a longer period.


  • To restore the cupcakes’ optimal texture after refrigeration, allow them to cool to room temperature for around half an hour before serving.
  • If you want to make the marshmallow icing even more gooey and bring out the cupcakes’ full flavor, you can microwave them for a few seconds at a time.
  • If necessary, warm the cupcakes before serving so you can savor their delectable goodness once more!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: Can I use a different type of cracker for the crust, like digestive biscuits?

A: Yes, you can substitute graham crackers with digestive biscuits if you prefer. The taste and texture may vary slightly, but it should still work well as a crust for the cupcakes.

Q: Can I substitute the sour cream with yogurt or buttermilk?

A: Yes, you can use plain yogurt or buttermilk instead of sour cream. They serve a similar purpose in adding moisture and richness to the batter.

Q: Can I use a different frosting instead of marshmallow frosting?

A: Absolutely! While marshmallow frosting complements the s’mores flavor, you can use any frosting you like. Chocolate buttercream or cream cheese frosting would also be delicious options.

A: Yes, you can use any type of chocolate you prefer. Dark chocolate will add a richer flavor, but milk chocolate is more traditional for s’mores.
