      Brittany, What a scrumptious, tasty, welcome to the festive celebrations of ending 2011 and beginning 2012! In particular, I like the cupcakes and frosting topped by peppermint. It gives such a bright absolute top to the dessert and such an distinct taste.

      Thank you for sharing, etc.,

      Derdriu

      I love mint chocolate -- usually the ice cream but I'll have to try these.

      Hello! These sound scrumptious. I would love to make them. I notice your ingredient list calls for 1c milk, however I didn't see it used in the instructions anywhere. Did I overlook it somewhere? Your other recipes look tempting as well : )
