Mint Brownie Cupcakes

Last fall I shared my Chocolate Chip Walnut Brownie Cupcakes

Last week I altered the recipe a bit to make Mint Brownie Cupcakes. 

 They were delicious!

Here's what I changed:
In place of mini chocolate chips, I used Andes Mint pieces.

Then for the frosting I added 1/2 t. mint extract. I used my cream cheese frosting, although I'm not sold on the cream cheese flavor with the mint. That didn't stop me from eating them. Next time, I'll try a different frosting recipe.

Do any of you have a good mint frosting recipe? I'd love for you to share it in the comments.


  1. Love mint and chocolate! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Anything that uses Andes Mints and has brownies in the name has got to be good. I'd love it if you stopped by my link party.

  3. Love it! I haven't had the chocolate and mint combo in ages. Can't wait to give these a try!

  4. It looks wonderful, and I really like the flavor combination!

  5. Rachel,
    These looks delish! I love mint and chocolate together and Andes' are my favorites. Thanks so much for stopping by Creative Thursday last week. I couldn’t do these parties without you. Can’t wait to see what you link up this week. Have a great week.

  6. These look really good. I love the Andes pieces on the top. Thanks for sharing at Showcase Your Talent Thursday!

  7. Yummy!! I bet a chocolate frosting with mint extract in it would be fantastic. Thanks for sharing with us at Link It Up Thursday.
