Hostess To Debut S’mores Cupcakes With Toasted-Marshmallow Filling

Hostess To Debut S’mores Cupcakes With Toasted-Marshmallow Filling

No matter how you make it — burned marshmallow, barely toasted marshmallow, so much chocolate you can barely eat it — s’mores are a summertime staple.

And this summer, there’s a brand new way to eat them: new Hostess S’mores CupCakes! Available exclusively at Walmart, the cupcakes are made with a moist graham cracker-flavored yellow cake, toasted marshmallow-flavored creamy filling and topped with chocolate icing. Just like an original Hostess CupCake, they also include the signature icing squiggle.

A Walmart representative confirmed to Simplemost that the new CupCakes will hit Walmart shelves nationwide beginning July 9, but only for a limited time. You can get an eight-count box of individually wrapped cakes for $2.68.


Prefer to make your own s’mores treat? No worries – we’ve got you covered. How about a copycat version of Starbucks’ s’mores bar or even simpler, add a strawberry to a classic s’more for a fruity twist on the summer dessert. You can also make s’mores cupcakes, s’mores dip or s’mores banana boats, which are cooked in foil and look so fun to eat.

Or, if you’d rather drink your s’more around a fire pit, check out this s’mores martini! Made with Licor 43, Godiva Milk Chocolate Liqueur and Van Gogh Chocolate Vodka — plus other essentials like toasted marshmallow syrup and chocolate milk — you can’t go wrong with this one after a long summer day.


If you want something seriously decadent to go with your martini (or are missing summer fairs this year) you have to try a deep-fried s’more. Yes, I said fried!

It’s obviously a bit more complicated than simply roasting a marshmallow and smooshing it between two graham crackers, but boy does it look worth it! Along with obvious ingredients like marshmallow fluff and chocolate, you’ll also need baking essentials like flour, milk and eggs.


Are s’mores one of your favorite summertime treats?
