Sugar Rush: S'mores Cupcake at Peels
S'more meets chocolate cupcake ($3) in this creation at the bakery counter of Peels. It starts with a classic chocolate cupcake base, so moist and dense it's practically devil's food. It comes topped with a silky cover of Valrhona chocolate ganache that gets just the slightest bit soft at room temperature. Torched swirls of soft housemade honey marshmallow crown the top. It'll be difficult to go back to any ordinary chocolate cupcake—or s'more, for that matter.
