Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes with Chocolate Peppermint Frosting

Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes with Chocolate Peppermint Frosting

I have a new favorite Christmas cupcake. I'm already a fan of chocolate and peppermint, but these have me hooked big time. The frosting alone is amazing! I ventured into my Sprinkles cookbook for ideas and this one caught my attention. How pretty are crushed peppermints?

Yummy, chocolate moist (ugh) cupcake with a rich milk chocolate frosting with a touch of peppermint flavor. Not overwhelming. I suggest you get the peppermint extract, rather than the mint extract. I like the peppermint flavor a little more and it doesn't seem as artificial. 

Are you guys ready for Christmas yet? Nope, me either. I keep remembering things I "need" to get. It's a never-ending cycle. I have been a baking fool though and I love it, hope my family comes hungry for sweets!
