S'mores Muffins

Anybody who knows me knows that one of my favorite flavor combinations in the whole wide world is the classic chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker combo. A few months back, I tried a smores brownie recipe that I found on Joy the Baker, and it was absolutely fabulous. My favorite ice cream is the Ben and Jerry's Marsha Marsha Mallow - who wouldn't love ice cream with giant chunks of fudge, graham cracker bits and gooey marshmallow...really? Anyway, I've been trying to come up with some new breakfast recipes and I hadn't made muffins in a while. I stumbled upon a recipe in a Taste of Home cookbook called "I want s'more muffins". I wasn't thrilled with some of the ingredients (or the fact that it only made 6 muffins), so I decided to experiment a little and come up with my own little rendition of it. When I tried the batter, I wasn't sure if it would even make it to the muffin cups it was so delicious! I think I've found my new favorite breakfast!

S'mores Muffins

Ingredients:
  • 6 Tbsp Butter, Softened
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2/3 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1 1/3 Cups Flour (I did white this time, next time I'm going to try doing 1/2 whole wheat)
  • 1 Cup Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Cup Milk
  • 2/3 Cup Chocolate Chips
  • Mini Marshmallows
Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a small bowl cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Stir in sour cream. In another bowl, combine flour, graham cracker crumbs, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and baking soda. Add creamed mixture to dry ingredients, add milk a little at a time. The batter will be a bit thick. Fold in chocolate chips.

Grease a 12-cup muffin pan. Add 1 Tbsp of batter to the bottom of each cup. Add 4-5 mini marshmallows to the top of each muffin cup.

Top with remaining batter filling cups until they are about 3/4 full.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes in pan before transferring to wire rack to cool.
