Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes

We are kicking off the new year with a delicious recipe for Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes! Thank you Plant and Sprout for working with us on this!






  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/2 bar Alter Eco mint chocolate - chopped




Preheat your oven to 180°C. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, cacao powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and set aside. In a smaller bowl, combine the sugar, water, oil, and peppermint extract. Add the wet mixture to the dry, and mix until fully incorporated. Fold in the chopped chocolate, and fill the cupcake liners about 3/4 of the way. Bake the cupcakes for 20-25 minutes, checking by sticking a toothpick into the cupcakes - if it comes out clean, the cupcakes are done!
