To Make the Cake:

1. Preheat the oven to 325, and line baking pans with cupcake liners.

3. In a food processor, process an entire sleeve of graham crackers until completely crushed.
4. Add sour cream and egg to the mixing bowl of a stand mixer and beat on low until completely mixed.
5. Weigh crushed graham crackers, flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt into a separate container. Set aside remaining crushed graham crackers to be used for garnish later.
6. Once butter is completely melted, slowly stream water/ butter mixture into egg and sour cream mixture with mixer on low speed. Mix completely.
7. Slowly add dry ingredients, and beat until smooth.
8. Fill liners 2/3 of the way, and bake for 10 minutes.
9. Once baked, let cupcakes cool completely on a cooling rack or sheet pan before assembling.

To Make the Frosting/Garnish:

1. Melt chocolate for frosting and garnish (6 ounces) in microwave or in a double boiler on low heat.
2. In the bowl of a standing mixer, beat butter until smooth.
3. Slowly add confectioners' sugar with mixer on low, and beat until lumpy.
4. Add Pinnacle® Whipped® Vodka a tablespoon at a time, and beat until smooth.
5. Add half of melted chocolate to frosting, and beat until completely mixed.
6. Transfer finished frosting to a piping bag.
7. Let other half of the melted chocolate cool for 15 minutes, and then transfer to a squeeze bottle.

To Make the Filling:

1. Add marshmallow fluff to a bowl.
2. Slowly add Pinnacle® Whipped® Vodka, mixing thoroughly.
3. Transfer finished Pinnacle® Whipped® Vodka/marshmallow fluff mixture to a squeeze bottle.


1. Once cupcakes are cool, core each cake with a small piping tip or the end of a small knife (such as a steak knife).
2. Fill each core with Pinnacle® Whipped® Vodka/marshmallow fluff filling, taking care not to overfill.
Frost as desired.
3. Drizzle melted chocolate over cupcakes in a zip zag pattern, and then sprinkle with crushed graham crackers.
