Peppermint Lollipop Cupcakes

For the icing I used cream cheese icing.  I meant to add peppermint extract to the red icing, but I forgot 🙁

Chocolate Muffins

2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 stick butter, melted and cooled
1 3/4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line muffin pan with paper liners or coat with nonstick spray.  Beat eggs.  Add milk and then the melted, cooled butter. Add the remaining ingredients; mix well. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until done.  Makes 12-18 muffins.

Note on the lollipop sticks:

I used foil cupcake liners and had a difficult time cutting a slit into the side of each cupcake to insert the popsicle sticks.  I decided to freeze the cupcakes and then making the slits in the side/inserting the sticks was easy:) Of course to eat the cupcakes, you need to remove the sticks 🙂
