Starbucks Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cupcake

The cupcakes!

Here's where I found them:) 

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup strong brewed coffee, cooled
3 large eggs
1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Step1:In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Next add the oil, coffee, and eggs. Beat at medium speed until smooth. Then mix in the sour cream and vanilla.

Step2: Place in cupcake liners and bake at 350 for 20-23 minutes.

The Frosting!

2 sticks of butter
8 oz cream cheese
1 tsp peppermint extract
2-3 cups confectioners sugar

Step1: Cream together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer.
Step2: Add in the peppermint extract and slowly add in the confectioners sugar.

I used a Wilton 2A tip to pipe on the frosting!

You can top off these cupcakes with some crushed up candy canes or peppermint bark!
