Mint Chocolate Cupcakes

Mint Chocolate Cupcakes


I recently discovered mint chocolate chips, and felt compelled to make something with them. I have never really loved mint extract, so I thought I’d see how this compared. I used half of this cupcake recipe, and made a basic buttercream with the mint chocolate chips.


  • ¼ cup (57 g) unsalted butter
  • 1/3 heaping cup icing sugar
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 50 g mint chocolate chips, melted
  • pinch of salt


  1. Beat butter on a low-medium speed until fluffy.
  2. Add icing sugar until well combined, and then add vanilla  and salt.
  3. Melt chocolate and add to icing. Mix at medium speed until well mixed.

The icing did harden quite a bit, so I think I’d add a tablespoon of milk next time. I definitely was a fan of the mint chocolate chips. My next project is to make cupcakes with them, rather than just icing.
