My Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes came together oh, so quickly thanks to Organic Miss Jones Chocolate Cake Mix. No kitchen stand mixer is necessary. All you need is one big bowl and one big spoon (or spatula.) In minutes, a moist cupcake emerges from the oven. Once cooled and slathered with vanilla frosting and sprinkled with peppermint candies, you’ll know it’s a Merry Christmas…whether it’s the holiday season or not.
1 package chocolate cake mix (I used Organic Miss Jones Chocolate Cake Mix)
1 cup milk
½ cup butter, melted
16-18 peppermint marshmallows
Ninja Note: The ratio of milk, eggs and butter to the cake mix reflects the brand I chose. Follow the instructions as directed on the package you choose.
Whisk together all the ingredients except the marshmallows in a big bowl.
Divide the batter into cupcake cases.
Slip in peppermint marshmallows.
Bake at 350° for 18-22 minutes for regular cupcakes, 10-14 minutes for mini cupcakes. Insert a toothpick into the cupcake centers. If there is a crumb or two, the cupcakes are probably done. More than that, pop the cupcakes into the oven for a minute or two more.
