For the Marshmallow Treat Cupcakes:
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 package Campfire® Egg Swirlers OR Campfire® Mini Fruit Marshmallows
5 cups crispy rice cereal

For the Buttercream Frosting:
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-2 tablespoons milk, as needed
sprinkles, edible grass, and additional Campfire® Marshmallows for topping


For the Marshmallow Treat Cupcakes:
Spray the wells of a 12-cup standard cupcake pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In large pan, melt butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows to the pan and stir until completely melted.

If using Campfire® Egg Swirlers this will take a little patience due to their size.

To decrease the melting time, you can cut the marshmallows into smaller pieces before add them to the pan.

Gradually add crispy rice cereal; stirring until well coated.

Use a buttered spatula or clean, buttered hands to firmly press the mixture into the wells of the prepared cupcake pan. You’ll need to work quickly, so the mixture doesn’t set up in the pan you melted the marshmallows in.

Cool for about 15 minutes.

Remove marshmallow treat cupcakes from the pan and prepare the frosting.

For the Buttercream Frosting:
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter on medium-high speed for about 5 minutes.

With the mixer on low speed, slowly add in powdered sugar, and continue beating until well combined.

Add in vanilla, and 1 teaspoon of milk. Mix on low speed until incorporated.

Beat at high speed until frosting is smooth and fluffy; about 4-5 more minutes.

If your frosting is too thick, gradually add a little more milk, 1 teaspoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency.

Spread or pipe frosting onto cooled marshmallow treat cupcakes and top with colorful sprinkles, edible grass and additional Campfire® Marshmallows.
