Ugly ... but oh so tasty...

So I have wanted to make S'mores cupcakes for a while now, so I thought I would make a batch today.

I started by making a graham cracker crust for the bottom of the cupcake, just graham cracker crumbs and melted butter pressed into the bottom of the cupcake liner.

Then I placed a marshmallow into each cupcake, and covered with a flourless chocolate cake batter. Baked in a 350 degree oven for 12 minutes.

The cupcakes looked quite good as they were baking and as they came out of the oven.

If only they had stayed looking just like this, I could have topped them with frosting and they would have been perfect.

Instead I pulled the cupcakes out of the tin and set them on the cooling rack. When I came back into the kitchen 5 minutes later they looked a little bit different. See how much it shrank back down after the marshmallow cooled. This would make it way too difficult to frost.

So I figured that I might as well taste one... so I cut it in half so you could see the layers first. Yum, a perfect graham cracker crust which gives it texture then moist chocolate cake and goooey marshmallow.
So although they are ugly, I don't think I will have any problem eating them today.
