Chocolate Moosey blog and I wanted to give Carla her due for hosting this giveaway so I decided to post this anyway. As you can see via Carla's neat blog I was sent decorative items for cupcakes, green food dye, peppermint and vanilla extras all from McCormick. They also included several sheets of recipes for St. Patrick's Day and I used one for Easy Green Velvet Cupcakes as inspiration for my own dessert.
1 box German Chocolate Cake mix (lighter color makes it easier to dye)
1 oz bottle of green food coloring
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup Creme de Cocoa
1/4 cup Creme de Mint
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1. Prep oven for cupcakes and line your pan with the cups. The ones from McCormick were paper but normally I use foil cups.
5. Spoon into the cups. I used 1 and about half another spoon full, using our soup spoons for the job. This made it easy to control the amount and I think they turned out fairly even.
Finally we had our cupcakes and we enjoyed them! Note: the mint flavor was very light so the next time around I'm going to leave out the creme de cocoa and just put in a half cup of the creme de mint.
What did you bake or make or buy for St. Patrick's Day, Sisters and Brothers?
