Happy St. Patricks Day! Thin Mint Cupcakes

I saw these cupcakes a week ago when Mary posted them on her blog, The Food Librarian and thought they were a great way to use up those Thin Mint Cookies. Then yesterday Laura, over at Real Mom Kitchen, posted them too and I decided they were the perfect dessert for tonight.
I had exactly 1 sleeve of Thin Mint cookies left and that is what you crush up and add to Martha Stewarts One Bowl Chocolate Cupcake recipe. I made the vanilla buttercream Laura made, but reduced the milk and vanilla and added 1/4 tsp pure mint extract, for just a hint of mint in the frosting. I also added just a tiny bit of green food coloring.
My brother tasted one and he said they were fabulous! We are going to have them after dinner tonight. So, hurry- there is still time for a St. Patricks Day cupcake if you haven't made one already!

Top of the evening to you Mary Ann:)

Thank you so much for bringing these cookies to my attention. There have been so many wonderful recipes celebrating St. Patrick's Day this year, I almost wish I would have posted a link list to go with my Bottoms Up post.

That's it -- I am making these tomorrow. I bought way too many Thin Mints because I heart them, and I can somehow tell myself that I will eat less of them if I turn them into cupcakes. We'll see!

YUM!!! I can still make these even though the holiday is over right??!!

The Food Librarian said...

Awesome!! Yours look so much better than mine - why did I think of green frosting?! Yummy!

Oh my heavens, I can't think of anything I would like more. I'm putting these on my list. I've been trying to cut out a few sweet treats a week and it's killing me!
