Here is a yummy recipe for Football Cupcakes! I had some family and friends over for the Superbowl game on Sunday and I wanted to make a fun football themed dessert. When I saw this recipe in a Phyllis Hoffman Celebrate magazine I knew that this was the recipe I would make. If you like the chocolate and mint combination than you will like this cupcake! The flavor reminds me of a Thin Mint Girlscout cookie. Leave the football off of the top and you’ve got yourself a great Saint Patrick’s Day treat! The recipe is only for the frosting so use your favorite homemade or boxed Chocolate cake recipe. The ingredients for the Mint Frosting are:
- 1 Cup Butter, softened
- 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 5 cups confectioners’ sugar
- green food coloring
- Grass tip
- In a large bowl, beat butter, cream cheese, and peppermint extract at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Beat in green food coloring, one drop at a time, until desired color is reached. Use a grass tip to pipe frosting on top of cupcake.
