Chocolate Cupcakes

This recipe is simple, and you don’t need an electric mixer to make it. First, you’ll whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt), breaking up any big clumps of cocoa.

Then, you’ll mix the wet ingredients (salty milk, egg, oil, and vanilla) into the dry. Stir just until combined and everything is well mixed.

These cupcakes are really moist, with a tender crumb and a rich chocolate flavor. One thing to keep in mind is that you should only fill the muffin tins about 2/3 full so they don’t overflow.

Bake them until they’re golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting them with mint buttercream.

Mint Buttercream Frosting

Buttercream is a classic frosting that adds a delicious, velvety texture to your baked goods. Whether you are making cakes, cupcakes or filling sandwich cookies, this easy and fast frosting is the perfect finishing touch.

This simple peppermint buttercream frosting is a perfect addition to any holiday treat! It can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator.

You can make this frosting as spicy or sweet as you like. Swap the mint extract for vanilla or add a pinch of sea salt to balance out the sweetness.

If you want to tint the frosting, use gel food coloring. This will keep the consistency of the frosting and prevent it from becoming runny or sticky.

When it comes time to use this frosting, you must be sure the baked good is completely cooled before spreading it on. Otherwise, you risk it getting too runny and leaking.
