Happy Cupcake Tuesday – I’m so excited you are here! Looking for a cupcake recipe? Be sure to check out the Cupcake Heaven page, there are over 200 cupcake recipes and decorating ideas!

If you have been around here, you probably know that I love everything that has to do with S’Mores! There were Campfire Cupcakes with Marshmallow Buttercream, Easy Pop Tarts S’Mores, 3 ingredient S’Mores Dip, and my favorite – The S’Mores Buffet where you can pick and choose your favorite combinations of S’Mores topping! I even created a S’Mores Pinterest Board…so fun!

These S’Mores Cupcake Bites are super easy with only a few ingredients, starting with a cake mix and finishing with marshmallow frosting, graham cracker crumbs and chocolate bars!

For a fun display, I used the top from the Olympic Torch Cupcakes to look like fire. There’s nothing better than sitting around a campfire, roasting marshmallows and making S’Mores!
