Tis' the Season....to enjoy yummy Christmas desserts! This is my favorite time of the year. I love the lights, the music, and the togetherness. But let's get real- I LOVE all the food! One of my favorite things to do is get a delicious cup of hot chocolate and add some Peppermint Schnapps to it. That chocolate peppermint is so yummy! So I thought- why not make this into a cupcake?!? That lead me to my Chocolate Peppermint Truffle Cupcake! I started with my original chocolate cake batter and put a delicious chocolate peppermint truffle inside each tin and baked. The truffles melt when being baked and creates a nice little "crust" on the bottom of each cupcake. Then I added some Peppermint Schnapps to my chocolate buttercream frosting. Lastly, I garnished with a crunched candy cane. Now this cupcake is Christmas. Enjoy!!
The truffle crust is hard to see but there is a little truffle layer on the bottom.
