One of my favorite sweets is mint chocolate chip. I decided it would be fun to combine that flavor with a cupcake. Top it off with an Andes mint and serve with a scoop of ice cream to create one of the best gourmet chocolate desserts ever. Yum!

Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcake Recipe

Just a little mint will do ya!

The cake part of this recipe is a basic chocolate cake. You can use any chocolate cake mix and follow the box instructions for the batter. After spooning the batter into the cupcake pan, scoop about 1/2 T of mini chocolate chips onto the top of each cupcake. Then bake according to instructions.

Mint Frosting Recipe

  • 1/2 C room-temperature butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Dash salt
  • 4 C sifted confectioners' sugar
  • 2 T milk
  • green food coloring

Combine the butter, vanilla and salt. Add sugar alternately with milk, beating until light and fluffy. Mix in 3 drops of mint extract and 2-3 drops of green food coloring (or until you get a fun mint green color).

Spread frosting on cooled cupcakes and top off with an Andes mint or more mini chocolate chips.
