I have a serious obsession with chocolate and mint lately. I suppose the timing couldn’t be better, St. Patrick’s Day is coming up and all. Which means that the world is full of Shamrock shakes! These Junior Mint Cupcakes definitely hit the spot for me though. Did you see that Junior Mint Dessert Dip that I made a few weeks back? Since then I haven’t been able to get Junior Mints off of my mind. Hence the Junior Mint Cupcake.
What started as a cake mix quickly became these minty chocolate cakes. That’s right, the cake itself is a chocolate mint flavor. Then I stuffed the inside with a creamy, minty filling. Swirled some mint frosting on. Then to top it all off, an actual Junior Mint. If this doesn’t satisfy the meanest chocolate mint craving, I don’t know what will. You may just be out of luck. I can’t imagine anything else that packs this much chocolate mint flavor.
