Found this super easy and yummy cupcake idea here . Basically you cook up some chocolate cupcakes according to the package and a few minutes before they are done you stick a York mini peppermint pattie on top. Then continue baking for the remaining few minutes. In the original directions she made mini cupcakes so that the mini patties cover the whole top. I actually made full size cupcakes and sunk the patties in bit. That's all there is too it. You don't need any frosting! This is a big hit for my oldest who loves peppermint patties and doesn't like buttercream frosting.
