Twelve Days of Cupcakes - on the Eleventh Day...


Peppermint Cupcakes

This cupcake just screams Christmas! It’s a Paula Deen favorite with butter, heavy whipping cream, sour cream and lots of peppermint. Paula suggests a white chocolate frosting (not my favorite), so I did a vanilla cream turned RED.

This cupcake looks, tastes and smells like a happy holiday in a perfect little package. If you can’t get into the spirit after baking this, well, I don’t know what to tell you. Maybe a visit to Holly’s Diner is the only cure!

HH was a bit skeptical at first (no chocolate), but after one bit he was a believer.

This recipe can be found in Paula Deen Magazine or at www.cookingwithpauladeen.com in the November/December 2008 issue, page 61.

Happy Holly-days!
