Doctored up Chocolate Cupcakes

  1. In a mixing bowl, blend cake mix and flour together.  Add remaining ingredients (melted butter, milk, sour cream, eggs, and vanilla).  Mix until blended.  Fill lined cupcake tins 3/4 full.  I like to use a D20 scoop for this.

  2. Bake at 350 degrees for 28-32 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

  3. Cool completely before frosting.

Green Mint Frosting

  1. Whip butter until smooth and fluffy (2 minutes).

  2. Add powdered sugar, 1-2 tablespoons cream, and Creme De Menthe. Add a few drops of food coloring until the mixture turns light green.

  3. Add remaining cream if frosting is too thick.  Whip for 4-5 minutes until light and fluffy.

  4. With a cupcake frosting decorating tip, frost each cupcake.

Decorating Extras

  1. Add 1/2 to 1 Andes Mint to each frosted cupcake. 

  2. Melt remaining mints and drizzle over each cupcake.
