Chocolate Mint Cupcakes

Chocolate Mint Cupcakes

Celebrate Earth Day with us with these yummy Chocolate Mint Cupcakes from Taste and Tell!

Mint lovers will go crazy for these Chocolate Mint Cupcakes that are topped with a smooth and creamy mint Swiss meringue buttercream frosting.

Here are some delicious Chocolate Mint Cupcakes that I made from the wonderful blog – How to Eat a Cupcake (update 2016 – sadly, this blog is no longer online). The only change I made to them was to leave out the chocolate chips, because I didn’t have any mini ones, and since I made mini sized cupcakes (see note at the top of the post), I knew regular chocolate chips would be just too big. These Chocolate Mint Cupcakes were awesome – and really – food bloggers rarely let me down!!

Chocolate Cupcakes with M&M Frosting

Chocolate Cupcakes with M&M Frosting

Blizzards, Blasts, McFlurries and the like have taught us that Americans love to mix candy in their already-sweet treats, which explains the inspiration for these cupcakes. Chocolate cupcakes, especially this recipe featuring coffee and dark chocolate cocoa powder, are luscious enough on their own, but top them with “PILES” of vanilla frosting laden with M&M candy, and we can’t think of one person who’d say no. Can you?

Milky Way Bar Cupcakes

Milky Way Bar Cupcakes

We’ve posted plenty of recipes for candy bars posing as cupcakes, but this recipe has a little something new. These Milky Way cupcakes aren’t just topped with pieces of Milky Way or baked with a little candy bar goodness inside. Instead, this recipe tops simple, but delicious, yellow cupcakes with Milky Way frosting. Yes, you read that right. You won’t need one single candy bar for the cupcakes themselves, but the frosting recipe calls for 12 ounces of Milky Way. Whether you opt for a few large bars or 12 small ones, this frosting is sure to hit that chocolate sweet tooth in all the right spots.

Butterfinger Cupcakes

Butterfinger Cupcakes

No matter how much you love Butterfinger, it’s impossible to deny the sticky, almost painful mess that is Butterfinger in teeth. If only there were some way to get the delicious flavor of that luscious peanut butter and chocolate combination without the inability to open your mouth for the rest of the day. These Butterfinger cupcakes are the perfect combination of that flavor, without the pain and suffering of Butterfinger aftermath. Topped with a delicious, crunchy Butterfinger frosting to offset the very strong (but delicate) chocolate cake underneath, these are simply a must-make (and a must-eat) for any chocolate / peanut butter lover.

Snickers Cupcakes

Snickers Cupcakes

There’s nothing quite as comforting, during any season, as the perfect candy bar, and Snickers may be just that. Of course, we’re fans of cupcakes as the perfect sweet treat. Thankfully, these Snickers cupcakes combine the best of both worlds with their yummy rich chocolate base and chocolate peanut butter frosting. That combination is enough of a treat in itself, but drizzle your creation with caramel sauce and top it with a slice of Snickers, and there’s just nothing else to be desired. These scrumptious dessert cups are a real crowd-pleaser, especially if you’re indoors braving a cold winter. So make a few extra, in the spirit of giving.

Malteaser Cupcakes

Malteaser Cupcakes

If you ask us, the foundation of any good cupcake is a good base recipe. Add in a favorite chocolate candy, and you’re in for the perfect sweet, tiny cake. For these malteaser cupcakes, “wet” chocolate batter results in a less cakey, more moist and fudgy sort of cupcake, and these little dudes are also topped with delicious malt balls perfect for cuddling up with a movie or taking in a weekend holiday party. Grab yourself some malt powder (think Ovaltine) and the usual plethora of baking goods and get cooking!

Christmas is getting closer, which means holiday parties are in full-swing. If you’re looking for a festive recipe to take to this weekend’s bash, these chocolate Christmas tree cupcakes should do the trick! It’s worth noting that the trees are chocolate, not the cupcakes, but don’t let that turn you off. While this simple white cupcake recipe is great on its own, adding a bit of buttercream frosting and adorable handmade trees on top makes a tasty, festive forest of deliciousness. Who doesn’t love an entire forest of yummy?

Ultimate Snickers Cupcakes

Ultimate Snickers Cupcakes

It’s Monday again, and if you’re anything like us, there’s nothing better at the end of the first day of the week than a big heap of chocolate. In fact, is there a better treat than a heap of chocolate AND a cupcake? This combination of the two just might be. Snickers lovers are in for a treat with this cupcake version of the delicious candy bar, which tops a basic chocolate cupcake with peanut butter, homemade caramel sauce and miniature snickers, just for good measure. Also for good measure, it’s perfectly ok to eat two. We won’t tell.
