Lately I’ve been obsessed with Martha Stewart Cupcakes – the best little cupcake cookbook I own.
I flipped through and found this little gem – mint chocolate cupcakes! While I appreciate all the work Martha put in on the mint chocolate leaves and the mint butter cream, I decided to cut down my work and make my own variations.
For the cupcake base, I followed Martha’s directions, but for the icing:
- – Butter
- – Icing Sugar
- – Mint extract (in place of vanilla extract)
Basically just use your basic icing recipe! I found this worked really well and still made a delicious, minty icing.
For decorations, I just threw a mint leaf on there! Still edible, and if I do say so myself, still adorable!
