Tasty Tuesdays

This week's Tasty Tuesdays is totally indulgent. There's no arguing that!

I hope you'll all take a second or two to leave a comment with a link to your favorite themed recipes this week!

This week's Tasty Tuesdays is...

Tasty Tuesdays: Cupcakes Galore!I can't think of too many things that evoke total indulgent pleasure than sinking my teeth into a scrumptious cupcake...and the more delectable frosting...the better! Cupcakes are just one of those things that bring you back to your childhood...make you reminisce the pure joy of innocence! Oh...and they're just stinking good too! Since cupcakes are enjoyed by adults and children alike - and everyone in between and beyond for that matter - I thought it was a perfect theme for this week's Tasty Tuesdays!

Here's a yummy recipe for Shamrock Cupcakes - perfect for today!

Shamrock Mint Cupcakes
Ingredients:
1 box chocolate fudge cake mix with pudding
water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on the cake box
1 cup creme de menthe or mint baking chips (from 10 oz bag)
I container fluffy white whipped frosting
24 large green gumdrops

Directions:
Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds; beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in baking chips. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full.

Bake 21 to 26 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cupcake comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pan; cool completely, about 45 minutes.

Stir peppermint extract into frosting until well blended; spread on cupcakes. To garnish each cupcake, cut 1 gumdrop into 4 slices. Place 3 rounds on cupcake to make shamrock leaves; press remaining round into thin strip and place below leaves for stem.

Enjoy!
I hope everyone has a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!
