Mint Chocolate Cupcakes


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:
Ingredients:

  • 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!

 
Enjoy!
