I got this idea from this blog. I decided to see what I could whip up using things that I already had at home. Mint and chocolate is always a safe, tasty combination, so I decided to use Grasshopper cookies instead of Oreos.
I lined my muffin tin (almost - I was short one, dang!) and placed one grasshopper cookie in the bottom of each.
Then I mixed up my boxed brownie mix. (I don't usually do stuff from scratch - maybe one day!)
Spoon your brownie mix into the muffin tins.
Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes.
I only had rainbow chip vanilla frosting in my pantry, so that's what I used! I added a little bit of peppermint extract to the frosting to give some more mint flavor.
Frost the cupcakes and enjoy!
I'm not sure when I'll get time to try this out, but I love the idea and hope to try it soon! How fun!
