Carma’s Cookery Foodstirs Series, Part 1
August 2017 Kit – Campfire S’mores Brownie Cupcakes
I’ve had my eyes on Foodstirs for awhile for three reasons:
- One of the founders is Sarah Michelle Gellar, Buffy from the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer
- The kits are very creative, which I believe helps home cooks unleash their kitchen creativity easily and safely
- The kits use organic ingredients
I purchased a three-month subscription. Today’s post is for the first kit I received, which were Campfire S’mores Brownie Cupcakes. I made them for a house-warming party I hosted and they were a hit.
Extra Ingredients You’ll Need
The kit comes with all the non-perishable ingredients you’ll need to make the brownies. What you’ll need to add to the list are these perishable ingredients:

What I Liked About Foodstirs Campfire S’mores Brownie Cupcakes Kit
The kit comes with pretty much everything you’ll need, including a frosting dispenser and cupcake liners. The frosting mix is da bomb. I pretty much could just eat that (and I did with the leftovers!). The brownies were tasty, as well.
What I Didn’t Like About Foodstirs Campfire S’mores Brownie Cupcakes Kit
The kit made eight cupcakes, which turned out to be just the right number for my party. However, under normal circumstances, I probably would have wanted to make more.
I’m not sure if it because the mix is organic, but I found the brownies to be a bit heavier than I like them. I like my brownies to be a little more cake-like in density.
Overall Thoughts on Foodstirs Campfire S’mores Brownie Cupcakes Kit
This was a fun kit to make and resulted in a tasty treat that my company loved. Although the assembly was a bit trickier than it looked, so I probably wouldn’t buy another kit. That said, it certainly was fun the first time!
Who Is This Kit Suitable for?
I think that this kit would be good for parents to make with their kids, as well as adults who want to present a different kind of treat at a potluck, but don’t have a lot of time to get creative on their own.
