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.

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.
