To celebrate running a good race in the JASR 5K yesterday, I made Mint Chocolate Cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. They're my favorite!
The cupcake is the basic chocolate cupcake batter with 1 teaspoon of mint extract mixed in. I tried a plain cupcake and it was heavenly--extremely moist and just melted in my mouth.
The frosting also has mint extract, with some green food coloring mixed in. You add a spiral of frosting to the cupcake.
Last, I made the quick melty ganache and spooned it on top.
