  • 1 1/2 cup from 1 box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2/3 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 gallon chocolate ice cream
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup from 1 tub (12 oz) Betty Crocker™ Whipped Milk Chocolate Frosting
  • 12 large marshmallows


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    In a large bowl, combine cake mix, egg, water, and 3 tablespoons butter. Beat until well combined.
  • 3
    In a small bowl, mix together remaining melted butter, graham cracker crumbs and sugar.
  • 4
    Spoon 1 tablespoon of graham cracker mixture into the bottom of 12 cupcake tins lined with parchment cupcake wrappers. Spoon 2 tablespoons of cake batter on top of the graham cracker crust.
  • 5
    Bake cupcakes in a preheated oven for 8-12 minutes, just until the top springs back to the touch. Remove and cool completely.
  • 6
    Soften ice cream and place large scoops on top of each cupcake. Please in freezer until solidly frozen.
  • 7
    Turn on a large burner of a gas or electric stove. Place marshmallows on a skewer and toast over burner just until golden brown. (Or toast marshmallows over a hot grill if preferred.) Set marshmallows aside.
  • 8
    Place chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl. Heat until melted in microwave, about 60 seconds. Stir in chocolate frosting, then heat again until melty. Stir until smooth. Allow to cool to the touch.
  • 9
    Working quickly, remove cupcakes from their wrappers. Top with chocolate frosting mixture and a toasted marshmallow.
  • 10
    Work on 3 cupcakes at a time to keep the batch from becoming overly melty. Once marshmallows are in place, return cupcakes to the freezer until serving time.

    Okay, here’s where you DON’T need a campfire.  Turn on your stove, place your marshmallows on a skewer, and toast the marshmallows over the burner.  Who knew you could roast marshmallows inside? (Just don't over-do them or you'll get marshmallow blop on your burner.)

    Melt the chocolate chips for sixty seconds in the microwave.  Stir in the chocolate frosting, and heat again until melty.  Stir 'til it's smooth. Oh, ok ... just an itty bitty taste is allowed.
