'Tis the luck o' the Irish you'll be gettin' when you top cake-mix cupcakes with a simple shamrock design.

Ingredients

1
box (1 lb 2.25 oz) chocolate fudge cake mix with pudding
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
1
cup creme de menthe or mint baking chips (from 10-oz bag)
1/2
teaspoon peppermint extract
1
container (12 oz) fluffy white whipped frosting
24
large green gumdrops

Directions

  • 1 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.
  • 2 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.
  • 3 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.
