[Once again, sorry for the craptastic photo! I took it inside at about 9:00 PM...not the most ideal circumstances!]
If you are looking for a super easy, kid [and adult] friendly dessert for all of your holiday parties, try these delicious chocolate cupcakes with peppermint buttercream!
You can make any type of chocolate cupcake, or even used a box mix if you aren't down with making your own.
For the buttercream, simply add 1 tsp. of peppermint extract to your normal recipe [I can post mine if you need it]! I colored mine with "Christmas red" food gel [the kind you get at a bakery store or craft store], and sprinkled the top with red & white peppermint sugared sprinkles. You could also sprinkle with crushed up candy canes too!
These turned out so pretty, and delicious! My boys absolutely loved them! Also great served with a scoop of peppermint icecream!
