Directions

  1. For Bites: Line mini-muffin tins with mini-paper liners. Mix all ingredients (except crushed peppermint candies) to create a chocolate batter. Divide batter among muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full. Bake until a toothpick inserted into centers comes out clean, about 10 minutes. Let cool in tins on wire racks.
  2. For Frosting: Beat butter with a mixer on medium-high speed until pale and creamy, about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to medium. Add sugar, cup at a time, beating after each addition, about 5 minutes. Add vanilla, and beat until buttercream is smooth.
  3. Frost each mini bite with buttercream frosting and garnish with peppermint candy.

Very good chocolate cake recipe. I tried the recipe exactly as written and loved the texture and the taste. I would have added a bit more peppermint flavoring. Also the oven temperature was not given, so I baked at 325 degrees. I made regular-sized cupcakes and baked 15-18 minutes. These tasted much better than a mix.

I used a different icing, so I can't comment on that, but the cake was delicious! I was nervous because the batter seemed so thin and runny, but it baked into a really moist, fluffy cake with just the right hint of peppermint. I will definitely make this again!

These mixed and baked perfectly, and the texture was tender and moist. These aren't bites per say, more like mini cupcakes with frosting. However, I don't even like mint and chocolate (made these for a party) and I could barely restrain myself from eating the whole pan. Also, I had vanilla frosting on hand so I just put peppermint extract in that and dyed it green. So good!
