Grasshopper Cupcakes



With all of this green around me, I got a hankerin' for something minty.  I love grasshopper pie, but needed a more family  friendly version so everyone could enjoy. 

You will need (makes 12):

-1 8oz. Block cream cheese (softened)
-1/3 Cup of sweetened condensed milk
-1 Egg
-1/4 tsp of peppermint extract
-1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
-1 Tbsp of flour
- 20 Oreo cookies (or if you like extra minty, try mint stuffed Oreos)
-1/4 Cup mini chocolate chips
-Green food coloring

Preheat oven to 375
With electric mixer, mix cream cheese, milk, egg, extracts, and flour until light and fluffy.
Mix in food coloring to desired color.
Stir chocolate chips into mixture.
Line muffin tin with cupcake wrappers and drop 1 cookie into each one.
Spoon mixture over cookies.
Smoosh remaining cookies in a baggie, then sprinkle over each cupcake.
Bake for 20-22 minutes (do not overcook).
Let cool.  Place in fridge for 4 hours or overnight.

Garnish with whipped cream, mint or more cookies!

Take a bite and give your baby a minty kiss!

Bye Cupcake,
