Any flavor would go well with chocolate. But, my favorite is chocolate-peppermint, especially during Christmas. I think everyone would agree with me that the ultimate holiday flavor combination is chocolate-peppermint. So, if you're crazy about this combo, read through this recipe because you're about to know the most delicious cupcakes ever made!
These cupcakes are basically chocolate cupcakes with peppermint frosting. Start with chocolate cupcakes as the base. They are light, moist, and melts in your mouth! If you'd like some kick in the cupcakes, add in a teaspoon of peppermint extract. Then, they are topped with a delicious and minty peppermint cream cheese frosting that resembles a candy cane! To make them even more festive, top with holiday sprinkles for garnish!
You can also make these cupcakes all year round and omit the red gel food coloring in the frosting.
