I interrupt this apple and pumpkin filled month to bring you some Peppermint Patty Cupcakes. On top of my love for fall desserts, mint chocolate combinations are the way to my heart. I despise convenient stores. With all the road trips we take, I find it very difficult to ever find anything to snack on. It’s pointless, because rarely can you find something that would be considered healthy. Do you go with salty or sweet? When I decide to give in to the temptation, my convenience store snack is peppermint patties. I have an undying love for mint chocolate. I think there is something about the oversized peppermint patty that just makes me happy. I think it’s the dark chocolate.
So I took some peppermint patties and mixed them into some frosting. These Peppermint Patty Cupcakes remind me of mint chip ice cream. The frosting to is so smooth and creamy, full of peppermint flavor that contrasts a dark chocolate cupcakes. There is also a layer of dark chocolate ganache filling inside these cupcakes.
This frosting will just melt in your mouth with every bite. If mint and chocolate is your thing, than this cupcake it right up your alley.
