I have another scrumptious cupcake recipe to share with you!!! Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes.  Oh My Goodness!


If you’re a purist when it comes to baking, I understand, but please read on.  Consider those times when you’re in a hurry and have no time to bake.  There are those times, right? But, like a trooper, you can pull out a recipe from your collection, like this one, and you still come out a hero, and no one will think less of you because you used a mix.  Believe me, I used to shy away from these kinds of recipes, but no more.  In fact, I think I’m all the wiser 😉

This cupcake still delivers that Wow! Factor.
