Out of the Star Wars cookie cutter set I’ve made Vader Egg Salad, Yoda Oreos and Boba Fett ice cream sandwiches, but I’ve yet to use the Stormtrooper. So I decided to make some homemade Graham Crackers (in Stormtrooper form of course) and use them as toppers on a marshmallow filled chocolate cupcake. Thus, SMOREStroopers. Oh word puns, you never get old.
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
homemade Graham Crackers (recipe, here)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prep a cupcake pan with liners.
In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.
Add the eggs, one at a time. Then the vanilla.
Alternate the flour mixture and the milk until combined.
Spoon the batter into the prepped liners. Bake the cupcakes for 15-17 minutes depending on your oven. Let cool on a wire rack.
When the cupcakes are cooled, using a cutter or a paring knife, simply cut out a little well in the middle. Fill the well with the marshmallow creme.
Frost the cupcakes, then place a homemade Stormtrooper graham cracker on top. And suddenly you have – SMOREStroopers cupcakes!!
