S'more Cupcakes..

The Batter:: 1 cup room temp butter, 2 cups of sugar, 6 eggs at room temperature, 2 cups of milk, 2 cups of flour, 3 cups of graham cracker crumbs, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt.
1) Beat the butter until well creamed about 30 seconds. Add the sugar and mix for about 3 min.
2) Add the eggs, one at a time, beating for about 30 sec after each one.
3) Put the graham crackers in a plastic bag, food processor, or blender, and crush into small crumbs.
4) Sift together the flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add about 1/4th of the powder mixture to the creamed mixture, then add some of the milk. Continue adding in a dry-wet-dry-wet-dry order ending with dry. Continue until just combined.
5) Scoop into cupcake liners and bake for 15-18 min until toothpick comes out clean.
FYI~ Batter will be thick~
Once cooled use a 1/4 teaspoon and scoop a hole into the center of each cupcake.

The Filling: 12 oz bag of chocolate chips, 1/4 cup chocolate syrup, 1/2 cup of milk
Place in a pot and melt all together. Then fill each center with chocolate filling

The Topping: 3 large egg whites, 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
In a large metal bowl, whisk together 1/3 cup of water, sugar,egg whites, and salt. Set bowl over a pot of simmering water, and mix with electric hand mixer at low speed. Gradually increase speed to high. Beat until stiff peaks form about 5 min.
Remove from heat and add vanilla. Beat for about 2 min until cool
Put a dallop in each cupcake.

These are a delicious treat. They were pretty simple and ultra delicious.

I toasted each with a lighter, it gave it that over the fire taste..
