Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cupcakes

Winter is well and truly here.
It has turned seriously cold here in St Louis, some days we have been waking up to a full frost and temperatures of -3! It may be cold but that also means that the holiday season will soon be here!

My favourite way to warm up on these cold winter days is with a peppermint hot chocolate from Starbucks. So when I saw that Betty Crocker did a hot chocolate cupcake mix I just had to buy it. With little marshmallows baked into the cake and a good splash of peppermint extract added to the batter it's the perfect treat on a miserable day.

If you want to make them you can just pick up a chocolate cupcake mixture and follow the directions for baking, but remember to add a few drops of peppermint extract. Top with white icing and sprinkle on some goodies!
