Fast, easy, holiday dessert!

[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!
