Holiday Java-Inspired Sweets

Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes are Inspired by Starbucks

— November 17, 2011 — Lifestyle
These decadent Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes are the handiwork of prolific food blogger Naomi from the delicious blog Bakers Royale.

Once Starbucks welcomes back their much beloved holiday drinks for another festive season, there is no denying that Christmas is upon us. From the time it becomes acceptable to drink caffeine with the taste of the holidays on your tongue, it’s a slippery slope to stocking your fridge with eggnog and baking for no other reason than to feel “christmassy.” Now, thanks to Bakers Royale, you can usher in the most wonderful time of the year by whipping up a batch of these sumptuous Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes inspired by the steamy beverage that started all this festive fuss.

These moist dark chocolate cupcakes are spike with coffee and peppermint extract and topped with a healthy dose of airy peppermint Swiss meringue butter cream. The whole decadent affair is capped off with a sprinkling of crushed peppermint candies, a drizzle of dark chocolate sauce and an intact peppermint for further decoration.

The Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes are the perfect way to welcome back Christmas for another wonderful season and get a little caffeine buzz while you’re at it.
