Mint-Filled-Cute-as-a-Button Chocolate Cupcakes

Recently, Martha Stewart came out with a cupcake book, filled with tons of recipes, ideas, and tricks. And being a fan of hers, I consulted in the book and decided to combine two of her recipes- the Devil’s Food Cupcakes and the Mint Filled Cupcakes. The Devil’s Food Cupcakes calls for sour cream, something that I have not tried with cupcakes before. The sour cream moistens the cupcake, and adds a little kick to it. Instead of using the chocolate ganache frosting, I made a red cream cheese frosting. The mint center was a really big hit and all my guests loved it!

Fresh from the oven, the melted mint patty tasted so refreshing and it took away fromthe too chocolately cake. I made a mixture of large and mini cupcakes for my sister’s house warming party, which took place over two days, and every single cupcake got devoured!
