No campfire needed for these chocolate s’mores cupcakes. Rich chocolate cupcakes with a graham cracker base stuffed with melty chocolate ganache, sticky marshmallow frosting, and topped with a toasted marshmallow. The crispness of the air means that fall is on its way. It’s an odd thing, the changing of summer to the fall season. Many of my friends hardly being…

Is it just me, or was March the longest year month ever? I suspect April will be just as long, but at least spring in on the way here in Michigan and temps are slowly creeping above 50F; hooray!
