Thin Mint Cupcakes!

 Thin mints!
Seriously the greatest cookie.
I made some into Thin Mint Cupcakes!

I used a box mix of devils food cake mix...

 Put a thin mint in the bottom of every cupcake paper.

 Filled 2/3 full with cake batter.

 Baked for 20 minutes at 350* F
 Let cool completely.
I used cream cheese, powdered sugar and a little milk to make frosting.
With about 5 drops of spearmint oil for a subtle minty flavor.
And...colored it light green so it would look like toothpaste!
Stick a cookie in the top too!

Use a veggie peeler on a bar of chocolate
 to make little shavings for garnish.

I used these cupcake stands from The Oriental Trading Company.
Just $10 for 12 of them...they are super cute!
Great for a party!
They come in 2 pieces and the top clicks into the base.
The plastic is thin and lightweight, but sturdy.
I plan on using these for the next party...one at each place for a dainty little dessert!

Linking up to THESE parties this week!
