Number of Servings: 18

Ingredients

    2 cups flour
    1/2 cup cocoa
    1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup sugar
    3/4 cup Hellman's (Best Foods) Light mayonnaise
    1 cup water
    1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

    1 batch white frosting
    additional peppermint extract
    green food coloring

    Chocolate mints, for garnish

Directions

1. Sift the flour, cocoa, soda and salt together. (I suggest not using a regular sifter as the cocoa does not come out well, use a strainer instead)
2. Cream the sugar, mayonnaise, water and vanilla together.
3. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and stir.
4. Pour batter into cupcake pans lined with paper wrappers.
5. Bake at 350F. for about 25-30 minutes.
6. Allow to cool.
7. While cupcakes cool, prep the frosting. Stir peppermint extract and green food coloring into the frosting.
8. Pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes and decorate with mints.
