  14. Garnish: 11 Keebler Scooby-Doo! Graham Cracker Sticks, 11 squares milk chocolate
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  5. Increase oven temperature to 375°.
  6. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt, whisking well. Set aside.

  8. In a liquid-measuring cup, combine buttermilk and water, stirring to blend. Add flour mixture to butter mixture in thirds, alternately with buttermilk mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
  9. Using a levered 3-tablespoon scoop, divide batter among prepared wells of muffin pan.
  10. Bake until a wooden pick inserted in the centers comes out clean, 15 to 16 minutes. Let cupcakes cool completely.
  11. Place Marshmallow Buttercream in a piping bag fitted with a very large round tip (Ateco #809). Pipe frosting onto cupcakes in a swirl.
  12. Garnish each cupcake with a graham cracker stick and a milk chocolate square, if desired.
