One of my favourite flavour combinations is mint and chocolate, so after stumbling across some mint chocolate chips, it was pretty clear what our next cupcake experiment would be. I have had mint chocolate cupcakes before, but found that a lot of people make the buttercream taste like toothpaste, which is NOT what I want on a cupcake. A chocolatey cupcake with a hint of mint (think mint Girl Guide cookies) was what we were aiming for when we started and we got exactly that. Definitely no toothpaste buttercream here! Just chocolate, mint, and yum!!!
