Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes

One of the favorite flavor combination's of the season - now in a bite-sized cupcake version!  
This is an easy recipe and a sure hit at any holiday party.  
Here's what you will need:
Devil's Food Cake mix
small, bite-sized peppermint patties
mini cupcake liners
mini cupcake pan

Step1:  Follow the directions on the cake box and mix all ingredients together.
Step 2:  Place the cupcake liners in the pan and fill to 1/4" below the edge of the liner.

Step 3:  Bake in the oven.  While they are baking, unwrap all of the peppermint patties.
3-4 minutes before the cupcakes should be done, open the oven and place one patty on top of each cupcake.  Let it continue baking for 3-4 more minutes - enough to melt the patties slightly so that they stick to the cupcake.

Step 4:  Let them cool, then remove from pan.
The best part - no time-consuming, messy frosting!  
Just garnish with little candy canes, or crushed peppermint.
