{Peppermint Pretties}

Okay, I'll admit it, I'm starting to become a cupcake-aholic!! Good thing I have co-workers to share them with or I'd be the size of a house! These are some of my FAVORITE cupcakes! { Chocolate Fudge Peppermint } Yum, yum!

Cupcakes
1 Box of Chocolate Fudge cake mix
1/2 tbsp pure peppermint extract
eggs (as directed by the box)
water (as directed by the box)
vegetable oil (as directed by the box)
Mix as directed by the box adding in 1/2 tbsp of the pure peppermint extract

Frosting
2 tubs of regular white icing
1/2 tsp pure peppermint extract per tub of icing
Sweet Stripes peppermints (I like these because they are soft)
While you are waiting for your cupcakes to bake, crush up your peppermints. I just used 1 peppermint per cupcake. 

Tip: crush up the peppermints with something hard like a metal ladle while they are still in the bag, much less messy! Sprinkle each cupcake with your peppermint bits

Voila! Your { Chocolate Fudge Peppermint Cupcakes } Super easy and super yummy!
