S’more Cupcakes

Bake chocolate cupcakes and frost with marshmallow frosting and garnish with graham cracker crumbs.
The frosting recipes makes enough for 12 cupcakes. I think it could be stretched!
Marshmallow Frosting:
2 large egg whites, 1 cup sugar, 6 Tbsp water, 1 Tbsp light corn syrup, ½ tsp cream of tartar, pinch salt, 1 cup miniature marshmallows, 1 tsp vanilla extract
In a large, clean heatproof bowl, combine the egg whites, sugar, water, cornsyrup, cream of tartar and salt. Set the bowl over (but not touching)simmering water in a saucepan and heat the mixture, whisking constantly,until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is very warm to the touch(about 160 degrees), about 2 minutes. Remove the bowl from the saucepan.Using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat the mixture until it isvery warm and soft (but not dry) peaks form, about 2 minutes. Reduce themixer to low and add the marshmallows and vanilla. Continue beating untilthe marshmallows are melted and the frosting is completely smooth, about 2 minutes more. Use right away. Make 5 cups.
