S’more Cupcakes for the Fourth

This recipe is perfect for the Fourth of July or any summer cookout! We tested this recipe out the other night and brought them down the shell path to the Hollister’s house for a cookout…there wasn’t a crumb left! This recipe has been tested and approved! Nantucket is expecting a wet and rainy Fourth of July, so these are perfect because we can’t have a bonfire and roast marshmallows outside in the rain.

I felt like I was on Cupcake Wars while I was making these cupcakes! There are quite a few steps but they are all worth it in the end! I hope you give them a try!












Happy 20th Birthday Caroline!
