DOMO KUN Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

You know I LOVE the combo of peppermint and chocolate. So a peppermint chocolate cupcake sounded like the right way to go and I added some chocolate chips, you know, for good measure. The secret ingredient in this? CHOCOLATE MILK. Mmm. Makes a difference. A good ‘ol chocolatey difference.

Since the Kid and I have been sketching DOMO lately:

I thought that the brown chocolate frosting would make a great character cupcake. Just a little fondant and there you go – a tasty DOMO KUN!

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 Tablespoon peppermint extract
2-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate milk
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

peppermint frosting
fondant dyed red
white fondant

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prep a cupcake pan with liners.

In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the sugar and the butter until fluffy. Add the eggs one by one and finally add the peppermint extract.

In a separate bowl whisk the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

Add the flour mixture and the chocolate milk, to the butter mixture until combined. Stir in the mini chips, and spoon into the prepared pan.

Bake for 15-17 minutes depending on your oven, checking with a toothpick. Let cool on a wire rack.

Once cooled, frost the cupcakes with the peppermint frosting. For the DOMO mouths I just dyed some fondant red, cut squares, then cut white ‘teeth’. Add dots of black frosting for the eyes.

Simple. Quick. Add some black frosting eyes and there you go – delicious, cakey – DOMOs!!!
