Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes

Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes

Step. Aside. Starbucks. You think you’re all holiday with your red cup and peppermint mocha latte?? These peppermint mocha cupcakes gives anything peppermint mocha a run for it’s money. I love peppermint and chocolate together. Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream, peppermint mocha hot drinks, peppermint hot chocolate. I love it. To me, it is the epitome of the holiday season. The warm flavors of the chocolate with the crisp, cool flavor of the mint… so good, I mean, ugh, just so good. I would love to make these into cookies as well, or brownies!! So many options, so much baking!!!

I topped these cupcakes with Andes Peppermint Chips. You could also do candy canes. I like the Peppermint Chips, because they are chocolate so they are soft, and you won’t be worried about breaking a tooth if you crunch on it the wrong way. You could even mix in the peppermint chips into the chocolate cupcake batter! That would give the cupcake a great texture. I personally love when there are mix-ins, like chocolate chips, in my cupcakes.

The frosting is a peppermint buttercream. Normally, in my buttercream, I add in vanilla extract- to give it some flavor. I did a combination of vanilla and peppermint extract, with a bit more peppermint than vanilla… gotta get that peppermint flavor!
