How to make thin mint cupcakes:

Cupcakes:

1. First, line your cupcake pan with liners and preheat your oven.

2. Second, you will need a large mixing bowl to whisk sugar, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla and oil together.

3. Next, get out a separate bowl and mix together all of the dry ingredients.

4. Add half of the dry ingredients into the bowl with the liquid mixture and stir well.

5. Finally, add the milk and stir gently. Add the remaining dry ingredients and combine. Be careful not to over mix this.

Fill each cupcake liner half way and bake. These do not take long and about 15-20 minutes. I like to insert a toothpick in the middle to make sure it comes out clean.

Let the cupcakes cool before icing.

Add the chocolate chips and whipping cream together in a small bowl. Put this in the microwave for 40 seconds intervals. Stir and keep microwaving in short intervals until melted.

Now my favorite party- Frost the Cupcakes.

1. First, take each cupcake and dip into the chocolate ganache. Quickly turn right side up so the ganache can set on top.

2. Second, use the vanilla frosting or your favorite homemade frosting recipe. Cream cheese icing is yummy too. Add  small amounts of the green food coloring until you reach your desired color for the mint frosting. You can even add mint or peppermint extract.

3. Lastly, use the piping bag and frost the cupcakes. Top each one with a thin mints cookie. You can even crush up a few extra cookies and sprinkle them over the top for more yummy deliciousness!
