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

  • eggs
  • oil
  • water
  • 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.
  • Enjoy!
