{Sugar Bee} Mint Chocolate Cupcakes

Looking to add a little bit of minty freshness to your cupcakes? Well here is the perfect...and EASIEST way to do just that! Just take your favorite chocolate or devils food cake recipe (you can even cheat and use a mix from a box) and add a little bit of mint extract. It is THAT easy! If you are making a recipe that yields two dozen cupcakes, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of mint extract.

Add some semi-sweet mini chocolate morsels to the batter for extra chocolatey goodness!

Frost your cupcakes with a buttercream frosting. If you feel extra minty, you can add 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of mint extract to your frosting.
Finally, garnish the tops of your cupcakes with an "Andes" mint or a "Thin Mint" girl scout cookie. You can even try crushing some "Thin Mint" girl scout cookies and sprinkling them on top.



  1. Everything you bake looks incredible, i wish i could do this xo.

  2. Oh thank you so much! It really is a lot more simple than you would think, I am sure you could do it too! :)
