It is a very rare occasion that we buy milk around here, because, well, Forrest is really the only one that can have it. However, I occasionally see some kind of dairy product at the store, and I can’t get it out of my mind. Such as…TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow milk!
I mean, we’ve all had chocolate milk…but chocolate marshmallow milk? Definitely a new concept to me. And when I saw it at Target, I had the brilliant idea to make a chocolate milk frosting and pair it with graham cracker crumbs and a chocolate cupcake to make a s’mores cupcake! I was especially excited to see that TruMoo Milk contains no artificial growth hormones, no high fructose corn syrup, and is nutritious and delicious — just like a cupcake (I kid.)
So, this cupcake is pretty basic (all you need is a box of chocolate cake mix, and some graham cracker crumbs) but you guys, the frosting? SO good. I modified a recipe from the Pioneer Woman for a milk-based frosting, and I seriously just wanted to eat it by the spoonful (I didn’t though, don’t worry.)
Jack had a blast helping me mix the cupcake batter:
He was also a big help with the frosting! It was hard for him not to eat any of it (though I feel like it wouldn’t have been as bad as some things — the TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow milk is made with fresh white milk from regional dairies around the world, pure cocoa, and a tiny bit of natural sugar.)
I had a hard time not drinking a big glassful of this milk after tasting the frosting — so yummy!
So, a few notes on the frosting/cupcake recipe. When you cook the chocolate milk with the flour, you have to cook it until it gets pretty thick…here’s a picture, it almost looks like batter!
And for the cupcakes, just buy a simple chocolate cake mix (we used triple chocolate), and bake it according to the instructions.
Cover with a heaping layer of the chocolate marshmallow frosting (believe me, you want a heaping layer) and then roll the top in the graham cracker crumbs, as so:
Of course, if you want the frosting to really shine, you can leave off the graham cracker crumbs…but I feel like they add a nice, finishing touch that really reminds me of a s’more! Also, this TruMoo Marshmallow chocolate milk is only available through February, so if you want this frosting to be the most amazing, be sure to make it this month. However, you could use regular chocolate or white milk (or strawberry milk) other months, and I think it would taste just as delicious 🙂
And you know what these would taste absolutely DELICIOUS with? A cup of TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow milk — heated up. Instant hot chocolate! See if it’s in a store near you with this store locator.
