I modified this recipe so much, but I think it still counts hahaha. In summary, I made Andres mint cupcakes with "too much chocolate" cake and Andres mints instead of plain chocolate in both cake and topping, side-stepping the peppermint extract dosage issues. The Andres mints within the cake add nice green mint speckles too.
First I used the Too Much Chocolate box cake version using fat free sour cream, 2 whole eggs and 2 egg whites to cut down the richness a bit, and Most Importantly I used chopped Andres mints instead of chocolate chips. Picture posted.
After baking, I cooled them. I was short on time, so I totally skipped the frosting, though I think that could add festivity for sure.
Because I went straight to topping, non-frozen was fine. I substituted the milk choc chips for Andres mints again, side-stepping the entire peppermint extract business. On top of the chocolate shell I added some chopped Andres mints for decoration.
My audience was easy: a houseful of college frat boys, but everyone loved them including myself :)
