Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes with Peppermint Frosting

I had this weird craving for a cupcake to taste like a peppermint patty, so the other day I picked up some peppermint extract while at the store.  

Sunday night, I made some chocolate fudge cupcakes, and then made some yummy peppermint buttercream frosting.  It came out wonderful, tasted just like a york peppermint patty.  They were so yummy, my family devoured them.

Peppermint Buttercream Frosting

4 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter
6 tbs of milk
3/4 tsp of peppermint extract. 

Cream butter until fluffy, then add 1 cup at a time of powdered sugar while continuing to mix.  Add milk and peppermint extract until fluffy and well mixed. 

Makes about 3 cups.
