My original objective for this muffin was a simple chocolate.. To say the least, my plans changed. As I had Graham Crackers baking in the oven the aroma of cinnamon filled the room, I then thought “Oo I will add some of the crackers to my chocolate muffins! Good idea, but why not add the fluffy white balls of goodness that are starring at me through my pantry door!!” So yes.. They suddenly became Chocolate, Graham Cracker and Marshmallow Muffins and may I say..
