Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

I love  mint chocolate chip cupcakes! The soft green color of the icing and cute little chocolate chips on top! These cupcakes feel like a real treat!

Start with your favorite from scratch chocolate cake or box mix. If you do want to use a box mix be sure to read my blog Lazy Cakes about making a box cake taste richer. I’ll include my basic chocolate cake recipe if you don’t have your own favorite.

Cake

2 cups white sugar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water

Instructions:

Start by preheating your oven to 350°. Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately before adding the dry into the wet 1/3 at a time. Reserve the boiling water for the end and stir it in by hand. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.18- 23 mins for cupcakes.

Frosting

1 lb butter

1 kg icing sugar

2 tsp Peppermint extract

Green food coloring for desired color 10-20 drops

For those of you who don’t have kilograms where you live simply mix one standard size package of butter to one standard size package of icing sugar. If it becomes a little thick add a splash of cream until you achieve your desired consistency.

Happy cupcake making everyone!
