This is my s'mores cupcakes real simple recipe. And it’s quite possibly the best recipe I have ever developed! They are soft and fluffy with gooey marshmallows and chunky pieces of chopped chocolate scattered throughout.
It’s the perfect treat to bring to a gathering/BBQ or just everyday baking. They look fancy enough for any celebration.
What’s great about this vegan s'mores cake recipe is how versatile it is. By adding just a touch less plant-based milk to the batter these marshmallow chocolate chip muffins turn into the most delicious s’more cookies!

Expert Baking Tips for making these easy s'mores in the oven
Although this recipe for these marshmallow chocolate chip muffins is super easy, here are just a few expert tips I'd recommend:
- Make sure your vegan butter is properly creamed into the sugar before adding the plant-based milk
- Use an ice cream scoop to evenly place an equal amount of batter on each muffin case.
- Fill the muffins close to the top of their case, to make a nice neat muffin dome.

Making s'mores cupcakes with marshmallow inside
Here's everything I used to make these s'mores cupcakes real simple
- Gluten-Free Plain Flour – this is paired with xanthan gum to give more stability to the muffins to prevent them from crumbling. However, if you’d prefer not to make these gluten-free simply substitute the gluten-free flour for normal plain flour. There’s also no need to add xanthan gum as the gluten in the normal flour will prevent the muffins from crumbling.
- Dairy-Free Butter – This can either be dairy-free spread or vegan block butter at room temperature to be creamed into the sugars.
- Plant-based milk – I used oat milk but almond, soya, or any other plant-based milk will work well too.
- Caster sugar – I like to use caster sugar in my muffins which is just very refined sugar. So if you can’t find caster sugar I’d recommend using very refined granulated sugar.
If you don't want to make this mini marshmallow muffin recipe vegan simply substitute the dairy-free butter for regular block butter or margarine, the plant-based milk for normal whole or skimmed milk, and the vegan chocolate for normal dark/milk chocolate.

How to makes s'mores - Step-by-step instructions
How do you make s'mores cupcakes with marshmallow fluff ?
If you'd prefer to use marshmallow fluff in place of mini marshmallows for this recipe. Then I'd recommend not incorporating it into the batter. Instead, spoon a teaspoon of fluff in the centre of the muffins before baking. This will create a yummy oozy marshmallow centre.
Can you bake s’mores ?
Yes, although traditional s'mores are roasted baking s'mores still allow the marshmallows to be toasted and golden. That is exactly what happens to the mini marshmallows on top of these muffins.
Can you make muffins with margarine ?
Yes, but make sure if you do want to make these muffins vegan that you are using dairy-free margarine/spread.
Storing and freezing
How long do muffins keep ?
These muffins are at their best for up to 2 days in an airtight container, 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge, and up to 3 months in the freezer in an airtight container.
