Can you say Girl Scout cookie season YAY! So I decided to make a Whole Wheat Thin Mint Chocolate Cupcake and it came out DELICIOUS, if I might say so myself. I added a few more ingredients to make a natural mint taste, without adding extract since I didn't make my homemade extracts yet. I think I got it I used peppermint candies and thin mint cookies, crushed then up in the blender and added them to my basic cupcake recipe and there you have it Whole Wheat Thin Mint Chocolate Cupcakes were born.
