Chocolate Graham Cupcakes With Toasted Marshmallow

This weekend, my dear friend Melissa and I were indulging in a spa day to celebrate her birthday, and I wanted to make Melissa a special treat to mark her special day. There is nothing more decadent that getting totally pampered and topping the day with a decadent treat!

I love making this cupcake as much as people love receiving and eating them. What's not to love --- a graham base, a rich chocolate cake, and a fluffy toasted marshmallow topping. I love making it as it gives me an excuse to create that delicious fluffy marshmallow topping and toasting it with my blowtorch!


I've previously posted on this receipe, which you can find here. I've gotten a teensy bit better with my photography thanks to the discovery of the macro button on my camera, so be kind to my old photos! :)
