- 1 Duncan Hines Chewy brownie mix made according to directions on box
- 1 C mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used Nestle)
- 1 can of white frosting or 1/2 recipe buttercream frosting minus flavoring (I have a thing about frosting, so I made my own, but I'm sure a can with extra attention would be equally good)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
- green food coloring
Preheat oven to 350. Make brownie mix according to directions. Stir in chocolate chips to brownie batter. Divide batter (about 2.5 T of batter per cupcake) into liners. Bake for 18 minutes. Let cool completely - 15 mins in pan to set and 15 mins outside. Mix vanilla, peppermint and food coloring into frosting. Frost cupcakes and serve. Made about 16 cupcakes for me.
