Chocolate Mint Chip Cupcakes are the perfect treat for the holidays. Soft and fluffy chocolate mint chip cupcakes, sandwiched with a creamy mint frosting and topped with Oreo cookie crumbs.
I wanted to dress them up a in a fun way for the guest of honor, so I sliced the cupcakes in half, spread a layer of mint frosting in the middle, piped rosettes on top and finished them off with a sprinkle of crushed Oreo crumbs. Plus who can say no to double the frosting?
The cupcake batter is the same base I used for my Peppermint Eggnog Cupcakes with mint chocolate chips baked inside. They bake up soft and fluffy with a hint of peppermint extract and compliment the rich chocolate flavor nicely.
A generous swirl of creamy mint frosting resembling the beloved ice cream flavor gets piped on and some crushed Oreo cookie crumbs ties everything together.
They are fun and easy to whip up and make a cute and festive treat for the holidays.
