OH MY GOSH, I am kinda excited about this Seven Layer Frosting. I love cupcakes; I really believe that the frosting can make or break a cupcake. I was never a huge fan of frosting, until I started to make my own. I used to eat the cake all the way around and leave the frosting on my plate.

Well I was looking to try some new frosting recently. I have been on kind of a coconut and chocolate kick; see Pina Colada Cupcake or Chunky Monkey Layer Bars. I was inspired by high hat S’mores frosting and I wanted to try a different frosting with graham cracker mixed in.

DING DING! Enter Seven Layer Frosting. This has all the fixings for a seven layer bar, including the condensed milk right in the frosting!

It isn’t overly sweet, but you would never know how many things are mixed in. It’s important with this frosting that you grind everything up in a food processor so there are no large chunks; also so that you can use a piping bag if you wish.

I like a lot of frosting piled high, but if that’s not your thing, you should half the recipe below.
