Mint Chocolate Cupcakes

Who doesn't love the combination of mint and chocolate? There is nothing better for an after meal sweet treat, and these cupcakes are perfect!

Cupcakes are those treats that can satisfy any cake craving, and whilst mint and chocolate may be seen as a more wintery or festive combination, we think it is an all year round winner!
