I Adores the S’mores…Cupcakes {Recipe}

I believe that if Devon (aka The Food Bitch) and I met in person we’d run in slow motion to great each other with giant spoons, she with pints of

 ice cream and I with cake and loads of butter cream in mine….wait, skip the cake, just a tub of butter cream.  We’d laugh and talk about foodie things, her dog Kanye, and then pass out on a couch with butter cream still dripping from our spoons.  I swear we’re kindred spirits, just read her bio – just like me.

I guess we’ll have to stay on opposite ends of the universe and dream of meeting one day (not in a stalkerish kinda way), but until then I’ve got my hands on her S’mores Cupcakes recipe.

    I can see that in my mind’s eye. May I join in if I bring my own giant spoon?
