Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes are what happens when sweet chocolate cake mixes with peppermint and sweet cream cheese frosting. Topped with crushed peppermint candies, this dessert is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit. And totally gluten free!
Have you ever tried peppermint chocolate cake? If you haven’t, you are seriously missing out. Peppermint is pretty much the perfect pairing when it comes to all things chocolate, and all things holiday. Not to mention, these are totally gluten free, and use one of my favorite ingredients in the entire world (besides for peppermint), coffee! Making these the cupcake equivalent to a big hot cup of peppermint mocha coffee. Does it really get better than that?
Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes are also the perfect treat to bring to a holiday party, office gathering, or even just to share with the family. With so many awesome flavors going on, you won’t even be able to tell they’re gluten free!
