It’s day two of S’mores Week, and I have a really serious recipe for you today.  S’mores Buttercream Frosting!  About five seconds ago I ate some of this straight out of the container in my fridge.  It’s that good.  Though, I suppose that if you are a more civilized human being, you could do something like put it on some vanilla cupcakes.  Or make a graham cracker sandwich with it.

Graham cracker sandwiches with frosting was one of my favorite treats when I was younger.  And seriously what frosting is better to stick between two graham crackers than s’mores frosting??  Right??

The other day I saw this picture on Instagram from my friend Julianne of Beyond Frosting.  She was making some Rice Krispie Frosting!  And since we were coming up on S’mores Week, a light bulb went off in my head!  S’mores Buttercream Frosting!!

The possibilities for this frosting are pretty much endless.  It is good enough to be called s’mores, but chocolately enough to be used just all the time as frosting.  The marshmallow and the chocolate pair together perfectly (duh) and the marshmallow gives the buttercream such an airy and wonderful quality.  This is seriously my most favorite frosting ever.

S’mores Buttercream Frosting


  • 1 cup melted chocolate
  • 1/2 cup melted marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 2 tsps vanilla
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 4 cups powdered sugar


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment on, cream together the butter, melted chocolate, and melted marshmallow until mostly smooth. Scrape down the sides with a spatula as necessary.
  2. Cream in the vanilla and the cream.
  3. Then slowly add the powdered sugar one cup at a time. Once all the sugar is added, whisk on high for about two minutes.
  4. Use immediately, or keep refrigerated until ready to use. Make sure to let it sit out before frosting cupcakes or a cake to make it easier to spread.

    Hello – I can’t wait to try this. Just wondering: when you say “1 cup melted chocolate” do you mean melted chocolate chips or Hershey bars or unsweetened chocolate. I notice there is plenty of sugar so should the chocolate be sweetened or un? Thanks SO much!

    Hello! This looks absolutely delicious! Would the frosting stay if it wasn’t refrigerated after I pipe it onto cupcakes? I’m looking to use this recipe for cupcakes for Tuesday, but I need to make and package the cupcakes on Sunday. Thanks so much!

    i made this. It is delicious. Now I just need to save some for the others. Oh, but it is so good and I just keep getting more spoons to sample it with. Will anyone notice we have no spoons left?

    I wondered what type of cream you use in the recipe? I’ve seen several different kinds used in buttercream icings, so I wasn’t sure.

    i know this is a silly question but did you measure the chocolate and marshmallows before or after you melted? thanks!
