For The Love of Peppermint Patty

I love a peppermint patty as much as anyone.  Maybe even a little more.  So, it seemed only fitting to create a cupcake in their honor. 

We began with a simple devil's food cake batter.  Filled each cupcake paper 2/3 full.  Baked at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. 

While they cooled we created a cream cheese frosting, replacing the vanilla for peppermint extract.  Frosted the cupcakes with the peppermint cream cheese frosting and topping each one with a few pieces of chopped peppermint patty candies.

ME too!! And if I can brag for a sec - these are delicious! We managed to get just the right amount of peppermint in the frosting without being overpowering.
