Greatest Idea Ever

So since we've been married we've had pretty good luck with meals. We haven't had the super fail meal yet that everyone talks about or burned anything to badly. So I'd say we've been pretty lucky in that area. (We'll be sure to post about our first epic failure meal.) Tonight we will share our epic success.


Smore Cupcakes in a Jar

They are AMAZING! Mr. Hubby actually helped me to make them. Who knew he could whip up a mean graham cracker crust. The inspiration came from one of my favorite food blogs that I had seen several months ago. We switched it up a bit but it was still fabulous. 

Recipe for Two:
Preheat oven to 355
Melt 1/2 stick of butter and mix with 3/4 cup of graham cracker crumbs.
Fill bottom of mason jars about 1 in with graham crumbs and press down firmly.
Follow directions on the box for a devils food cake to make the cake batter.
Pour batter over graham crust and fill no more than halfway up the jar.
Place jars in a cake pan that has higher sides with about 1/2 in of standing water. 
Bake for 30 minutes.
Once done baking, pull out and stuff jars with as many marshmallows that will fit and broil for 1-2 minutes.
Just until marshmallows brown and are melted.
Serve immediately. Enjoy!

Now we had a lot batter left over since we only made two so we decided to make extra cupcakes. We improvised because we didn't have any icing lying around so we made more smore cupcakes. Baked them in muffin tins. Moved them to a cookie sheet covered in foil and topped them with marshmallows. Broiled them and then topped them with left over graham crust. Delicious!

Have a big glass of milk ready! We couldn't even finish our one jar it was so rich. Don't worry....we briskly walked 3 miles yesterday.
