Hot Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes
Recipe Adapated From: EasyBaked.net
Chocolate Cupcakes made this way
1- 8oz tub Cool Whip
4 Tablespoons Peppermint Sprinkles
1 cup Salted Butter, room temp
6 cups Powdered Sugar
1 cup Hot Chocolate Powder
4 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
1. Make cupcakes and let cool completely. Put cool whip in a bowl and fold in the peppermint sprinkles until combined. Cut a cone out of the center of each cupcake to put the peppermint cool whip in. Pipe the cool whip into the center of each cupcake.
2. For the frosting combine the butter, powdered sugar, hot chocolate powder, heavy cream, and pure vanilla extract until light and fluffy. Pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes. I think these taste best at room temperature, not cold. Enjoy!
