Minty Chocolate Cupcakes

It was a coworker's birthday this week, so along with all the other baking I did for the volunteer thank you, I made Chocolate Mint Cupcakes to celebrate.

The cupcake recipe came from The Vegan Table - minus the vanilla plus 1.5 tsp of mint extract.

For the Chocolate Icing

3/4 cup soften Earth Balance
1 cup cocoa powder
1/2 - 3/4 cups of maple syrup
1.5 tsp mint extract

Using a hand mixer, mix all ingredients together. Start with 1/2 cup of maple syrup and keep adding until the correct constancy and flavour is reached.

I topped each cupcake with some smashed candy canes. They tasted awesome!
