Peppermint Patty Cupcakes

I found this recipe for Peppermint Patty Cupcakes at "A Cuppy Cake Life". I LOVE Peppermint Patties and knew right away that I had to try this concept.

I changed my version up by using a cake mix and my regular fluffy icing recipe. I didn't have the necessary ingredients for the Spong Cake used and I wanted the icing to be thicker like the actual center of a Peppermint Patty.

You can go over to A Cuppy Cake life to find the original recipe I found. Here's my quick and easy version:

Peppermint Patty Cupcakes


Use a chocolate cake mix and follow instructions as on box. Fill the cupcake liners only 1/2 full. Bake and cool.


1/2 cup shortening

1/4 cup milk

1 tsp. Peppermint Flavoring

4 cups powdered sugar (est.)

Combine shortening, milk and peppermint flavoring. Beat. Add powdered sugar. Beat until well mixed. Continue beating until fluffy. You may have to add a little more milk/sugar to get the consistency you desire.

Pipe the icing onto the cupcakes.

Garnish with a mini Peppermint Patty.

I took these to a church picnic and they were devoured! They were really, really good. A must try.

Let me know if you give them a try and what you think.
