For a real morning pick-me-up, consider baking up a batch of these peppermint mocha cupcakes. This adult-only treat contains strongly brewed coffee, along with more traditional cake ingredients like flour, cocoa powder, butter, sugar, milk, an egg, baking soda and brown sugar. The peppermint part comes in with the addition of the frosting. Pile on mounds of this buttercream icing, made from cream cheese, butter, peppermint extract, powdered sugar and vanilla. For a little more “kick” add crushed up peppermints to the batter before baking, and top off with a generous helping of colorful sprinkles!
