S'mores Cupcakes

I wanted to try these cupcakes because I love S'mores and they are so comforting and it is getting cold here!  I used the Perfectly Chocolate Cupcake recipe and made my cupcakes.  I made sure to fill my cupcake liners only half full with the batter.  The cupcakes baked a little over the top of the liner so next time I may try to add even less batter! 

Next up was the Marshmallow Frosting.  I got the recipe from the Glorious Treats Blog.  I made the frosting according to the directions and it did not come out ok!!  My frosting was so thin.  I couldn't pipe it on the cupcakes (see picture).  I just had to spoon it on. 

I hate when something doesn't come out right.  Drives me bonkers!!  I knew what I did wrong.  Directions step 3 - beat the egg white mixture for about 2 minutes.  Well - I am a very literal person and that is exactly what I did.  WRONG!  I needed to make sure the egg whites thickened and became like a meringue.  So I made the frosting a second time.  I put the whisk attachment on my mixer and beat them for a long, long, long time.  I would say over 10 minutes.  The frosting came out better and because I was bringing them to a party I didn't have time to make it a third time.  So I went with it. 

I piped the frosting onto the cupcakes with a 1M tip.  I browned the frosting with my handy dandy kitchen torch.  I am so happy that we have found another use for that thing.  We have had it for 7 years and have maybe used it twice.  Be careful doing this though - it does get hot!  Then we put a piece of graham cracker and hershey bar on each cupake and done! 

Next time I would make sure I beat the egg white mixture on high with my whisk attachment for a long time until they were very thick.  And - I should have followed my own rule of not baking something for the first time when I need to take it somewhere!  I will definately make these again.  Love the marshmallow frosting.
