Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Miss Mabel created a Summer Baking Bucket List and has been checking off delicious recipes one at a time. A few weeks ago, she had her friend over and the two of them baked these Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes.



They were so YUMMY!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup warm water
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla

Ingredients for butter cream:

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
4 cups icing sugar
2-3 tbsp cream or milk
1-2 tsp mint extract
6 oz of mini chocolate chips plus extra to sprinkle
green food coloring (optional)

Instructions:

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 muffin pans with 15 cupcakes liners.

2. I a large bowl, whisk all the dry ingredients together until evenly mixed.

3.  Add in all wet ingredients and whisk together.  Then using a rubber spatula, scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl to make sure no dry flour remains and whisk again, vigorously for another minute or two until smooth.

4.  Fill each liner 2/3's full and bake for about 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

To make the butter cream:

1.  Using the handheld mixer or stand attachment, beat butter until light and fluffy.

2.  Add 2 tbsp of cream, extract, and 1 cup of icing sugar.  Beat well and add remaining cups of icing sugar, one at a time.  Beat well after each addition.  Add another tbsp of cream if needed to get desired consistency.

3.  Add the green food coloring, a few drops at a time until you get your desired color (I used 10 drops).

4.  Stir in chocolate chips, frost on top of completely cooled cupcakes.

If you want to pipe your frosting, make sure you use a large enough tip like a Wilton 8B or 1A.

Enjoy!!

  1. These look yummy. Kenzie loves mint chocolate chip! I may just have to modify this recipe into a gluten free one for her. Thanks for sharing.
