S'mores Brownie Cupcakes

Although I haven't posted since last month I have definitely still been baking. I've been making mostly the flavors that I've already posted about:
Red Velvet is always the #1 request!
But, this cold winter had me thinking of campfire S'mores.  After trying a mini S'mores cupcake from a local bakery I began searching for the perfect recipe.  I adapted this one from
Homemade by Holman.  I used a little less sugar but added more cocoa powder and more marshmallows and omitted the frosting.  I left out the frosting because I've also been craving brownies and was not in a frosting kind of mood. Plus, after tasting one, it was already PERFECT!! This is now ONE of my favorite cupcakes! It tasted like a a cakey brownie with a little marshmallow sweetness and gooey-ness inside. 
The graham cracker crumb bottom gave a nice crunchy bite. So, if you're a chocolate lover, this is definitely a "must-try" recipe. It's so rich and moist. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!
