I wish I had something clever to say about these. They are not super original. I first saw this type of recipe done on the Food Network site. But sometimes food blogging isn’t about reinventing the wheel. Sometimes the wheel is delicious and we just want to eat some marshmallows without revolutionizing them.
I didn’t even include the brownie recipe (yes that’s the main part of this) but it’s because I just used this Martha Stewart recipe and didn’t alter it. It wasn’t my absolute favourite brownie recipe ever but it does the trick. If you have one you love then use it and share it in the comments!
It’s like I didn’t even try. Some days are just like that.
I don’t even know if I can call this a recipe. Because it’s so easy and takes less than 5 minutes to make. It doesn’t even use an oven. This is microwave- start to finish. It requires one bowl, a spoon, and a paper bag.
I’m having a busy, yet un-motivated week. So I ate a bunch of peanut butter popcorn. And now you can eat peanut butter popcorn and maybe later I will turn my oven on.
Unlike the regular S’more Popcorn, I choose to shape these into balls to create individual servings. This is helpful to keep oneself from eating an entire batch in one sitting.
Sometimes I want to bake treats that will make the people who eat them think I’m awesome.
Sometimes I want to set things on fire.
S’more cupcakes satisfy all three of these criteria. These cupcakes are a project (albeit not a difficult one), there was lots of fire involved, and I think I achieved a solid level of awesomeness. One person actually said these were the best cupcakes he’d ever had. I’m going to go out on a limb and say they’re almost bakery-worthy – these things are that good.
While I adapted the proportions and a few ingredients, all credit for this concept goes to Cookies and Cups. The cupcakes, the icing and the assembly are all from them, so go take a look. For the chocolate cupcakes and marshmallow icing, see this post.
Do you need a snack? Maybe something sweet? Perhaps something to munch on while you watch Degrassi High on Netflix? Ah yes, the winning combination of graham cracker, marshmallow, chocolate and 1980′s Canadian melodrama. Throw in some popcorn and you’re set.
Did you know you can air pop popcorn in the microwave just using a paper bag? I was a bit skeptical when I saw this trick for making popcorn in a paper bag but Liz gave it a shot and it worked for her. She made it for me when she was here, and other than being a tiny bit nervous that the bag might catch on fire, it made really great popcorn! And no microwave fires! Bonus!
