chocolate and peppermint cupcakes


I lost a bet in the beginning of the NFL 2011 season. Now I owe Marco cupcakes. I used whatever ingredients I had on hand. What's this: Junior Mints and chocolate. Done. 

Side note: I also concocted a great tasting frosting recipe by combining chocolate buttercream and cream cheese frostings and it made a very silky and delicious topping. You should try it.




INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 c. flour
1 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/3 c. cocoa powder
1/2 c. oil
1 c. water
1 tsp. peppermint extract
(yeah no eggs, isn't that awesome)

DIRECTIONS:

1. Mix all ingredients together until moist and well blended.
2. Put in cupcake cups and add 2 Junior Mints in the middle and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F.
3. Frost with your favorite icing.
