Oooh, Hello: Peppermint Mocha Latte Cupcakes

| December 7, 2012 | 1 Comment

About six weeks ago, I got an email from one of my editors asking me if I was interested in a special project — a cupcake project. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love cupcakes. But

But these weren’t just any cupcakes. She challenged me to transform four favorite seasonal latte flavors (from Starbucks, natch) into decadent cupcakes. I was all in. And last week, I made one that might just be my favorite of all: The Peppermint Mocha Latte Cupcake. Oh, hello.

This moist chocolate mocha cupcake is topped with peppermint frosting and a sprinkling of crushed candy canes. It’s simply divine. Just ask Shawn and the kids — who practically ate the whole batch.
