I’m beyond excited about today’s recipe for caffeine spiked s’mores cupcakes.

Not just because they have bacon in them.  Bacon Month is only one reason to be excited!

Making Caffeine Spiked S’mores Cupcakes

Fry Oscar Mayer bacon until it’s nice and crisp. Let it drain on a paper towel while you prepare the cupcake batter.

Make the batter for your favorite chocolate cupcakes, either a homemade recipe or a box mix is fine.  CLICK HERE to see the recipe I used.  Brew yourself a cup of Maxwell House coffee, because you’ll need to add some into the batter, or you can add 1 teaspoon of instant coffee granules.

Crumble the bacon into very small pieces and sprinkle it over the cupcake batter. Don’t stir it in, because all of your bacon will sink to the bottom of your cupcakes.

After baking, transfer the cupcakes to a wire rack to cool.

Meanwhile, set up your toppings: graham cracker crumbs, chocolate pieces, more crumbled bacon, and marshmallows or marshmallow creme. I decided to use the creme for easier spreading. If you use mini marshmallows, I suggest applying a thin layer of vanilla frosting to the top of the cupcakes first, then sprinkle some graham cracker crumbs onto it. Then you can adhere the marshmallows to the frosting.

After you’ve applied the marshmallow and graham cracker crumbs to the top of your s’mores cupcakes, you’ll need to use a kitchen torch or a broiler to toast the topping.  IMPORTANT: Do NOT add the chocolate bar to the top of the cupcakes until after you’ve toasted the marshmallows.

Well, unless you enjoy melted chocolate on your cupcakes and possibly in your lap, in which case, have an ooey gooey good time!

  1. Damn delicious!!!
    the photograph is truely seducing me…
    never had bacon with cofee sweet bites before, this is really worth to try!!!

  2. Do I even need to say Yum? These cupcakes have ALL of my favorites! I will have to stock up on the ingredients now! #Client

  3. You seriously hit all the favorites with this one Becca. Only thing I don’t like is that I don’t get to bite into those cupcakes until I make them myself,

    1. Thanks, Karen. You might want to do what I did and hoard a few for yourself. After you’ve put in all the work on them, it’s a shame to let a human vacuum cleaner eat them all while you’re not watching 😉
