I thought I'd share my new creation -it's pretty easy and looks great for the theme!

This is a combination of recipes:
Popcorn Smores  (Makes aprox 2 dzn):

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (from about 20 squares)

1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted

1/4 cup sugar

1 box Dark Chocolate Cake Mix

3 oz pkg of instant Choc Pudding

16 oz Sour Cream (I used light)   

3 eggs

1/3 C oil

1/2 C Strong Coffee (not hot)

12 oz mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (reserve aprx 1/2 C for graham crust)

Bag of mini marshmallows

White Frosting

1) Preheat oven to 350.  Line Cupcake pans with paper liners.

2) Place graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar, and melted butter in a large bowl; stir until well combined.

3) Place 1 tablespoon graham cracker mixture into the bottom of each prepared muffin cup. Use the bottom of a small glass to pack crumbs into the bottom of each cupcake liner. Reserve remaining graham cracker mixture for topping.

4) Place 2 teaspoons chocolate chips in each muffin cup. Transfer muffin tins to oven and bake until the edges of the graham cracker mixture is golden, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven.
5) Cake Batter:
1 box Dark Chocolate Cake Mix
3 oz pkg of instant Choc Pudding
16 oz Sour Cream (I used light)   
3 eggs
1/3 C oil
1/2 C Strong Coffee (not hot)
Beat above together about 2 mins
Then stir in a 12oz bag semi-sweet mini chocolate chips (reserve 1/2 c for  top of graham crust)

*The batter will be very thick...similar to brownie batter.

6) Fill each muffin cup three-quarters full with cake batter. Sprinkle remaining (if any) graham cracker mixure on top. Bake at 350 for 17-20 min or until toothpick comes clean.

7) Transfer muffin tins to a wire rack and let cupcakes cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pan and let cool completely.

Any white frosting (I used Betty Crocker White Whipped- normally I make a buttercream from scratch w/Sweetex shortening)

Bag of mini marshmallows

Frost cupcakes after they have cooled (oh I also injected mine with chocolate frosting w/a bismarck tip but you could skip that)

Put oven on broiler setting.

Line a pan with foil and drop marshmallows into mounds.  Put in oven and watch carefully until they are the golden setting you prefer.  Use a spatula and scrape each mound (one at a time) and place on frosted cupcakes.

*My mom mentioned that my grandmother used to cut a small cone shape out of cupcakes and shove a large marshmallow in while they were still hot and put it back in the oven until it was melty and then cool them, frost, etc...I haven't tried this yet.  I'm making about 80ish for the party and I'm not sure how it will freeze/thaw...

I'm open to more ideas or suggestions!  Let me know if you have any!  Thanks all!
