Mint Chocolate Crunch Cupcakes

Makes 12 cupcakes

INGREDIENTS:

For the cupcakes:

  • 1 box (14.5oz/411g) Enjoy Life Foods Muffin Mix
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh mint
  • 1 cup plus 2 teaspoons cold water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or grapeseed oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the glaze:

For the toppings:

DIRECTIONS:

  1. To make the cupcakes, preheat the oven to 350˚F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.
  2. Put the muffin mix and fresh mint in a large bowl. Whisk to combine. Add the water, oil, and vanilla extract. Whisk until well-combined.
  3. Divide the mixture into the prepared baking pan, filling each one about two-thirds full.
  4. Bake for 17 to 20 minutes until golden brown, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes, then transfer each one to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Once the muffins are cool, make the glaze and prepare the toppings. Put the Mini Chips and the oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each one, until melted and smooth. Put the ground Double Chocolate Crunchy Cookies in a bowl, and have the mint leaves ready
  6. Invert each cupcake into the glaze, letting excess drip off, then press the topping into the cookies to coat. Poke the mint leaf into the top, like a sprig, before the glaze firms. Transfer the cupcake to the wire rack to set. Repeat with remaining cupcakes.
  7. Serve, storing leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days, in the refrigerator up to 3 days, and any other leftovers to the freezer.
