Hello delicious cupcakes. You are so incredibly beautiful.
Are you looking for a cupcake perfect for the holidays? I am pretty sure you have probably found it in this classic Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cupcake Combo. Honestly, this cupcake is divine. That rich dark chocolate with that incredible peppermint flavor. Oh so incredibly good.
For the first day of #Choctoberfest, I brought one of our favorite cupcake recipes. Because, who doesn’t love cupcakes?
You really cannot go wrong with a Chocolate Peppermint Combo. These remind me of those delicious Peppermint Patties. SO good! They are so festive and perfect for the holidays coming up.
We’ve made these so many times, they are perfect at the holidays, but they can be just as delicious any time of year! Don’t worry about making them in the middle of July. If you want a chocolate peppermint cupcake in July, you should have one. It’s just that simple.
Which chocolate is better for chocolate peppermint cupcakes?
We’ve tried them both with milk chocolate and dark chocolate. I really believe this is a preference thing. We personally prefer the dark chocolate. But it’s okay to enjoy milk chocolate as well. If you want regular milk chocolate, simply use regular cocoa powder. We used ark cocoa powder though, and loved the results.
It’s all up to you. These are your cupcakes to do how you want.
Don’t worry though, they still taste great. Milk or dark. We just prefer the Dark Chocolate.
