If mint chocolate chip ice cream is your favorite flavor, then you’ll love these Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with a big scoop of mint chocolate chip buttercream frosting on top. Tastes just like mint chocolate chip ice cream but without the mess of melting everywhere!
Is it true? Is Sunday *really* March 1? What happened? I swore just yesterday the groundhog threatened us with more winter then I spent the next few days bundled up in my apartment as wind chills hit below zero. Then my friend texted me that Shamrock Shakes are back at McDonald’s. Yes! That to me is the kickoff to #mintchocolatechipallthethings. Even though mint chocolate chip is acceptable all year round, I can’t help but associate it with March. Probably because most things are artificially green, making them perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. I have a few mint chocolate chip recipe ideas coming up, starting with these Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes – chocolate mint cupcakes topped with mint chocolate chip buttercream frosting. Nope, that’s not ice cream! Instead of decorating them like normal, I scooped frosting right on top. Clever, aren’t I? These cupcakes would be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, birthday parties, I-wish-it-were-summer parties, and I’m-in-the-mood-for-a-cupcake parties.
