I made these for a co-workers birthday and they came AMAZING!! I got so many compliments and everyone loved them! I will absolutely be making these again! They took a bit of time to make, but sooooo worth it! I just posted a picture of mine on Pinterest and referenced myrecipes.com so hopefully a lot of other people will make these too! :)

I love this recipe. I made a few changes and added mint extract rather then chocolate. I also instead of the ganache filling I put a small frozen ball of chocolate chip cookie dough in the center and then put the mix over the top and baked. When you toothpick check them, place toothpick to the side rather than center of cookie dough. I then followed mint frosting recipe. They are amazing and people will love you and the cupcakes!

Not just the Best Cupcakes I have ever made, but the best cupcake I ever ate! I am not kidding. I didn't think I could make such a fancy cupcake as I don't bake often, and it did take me awhile. I didn't have "super fine" sugar, or "dutch processed" cocoa. Nor did I have chocolate extract or "soft-wheat" flour. I also baked them at 6500 foot elevation. I left the baking powder measurement the same and added a few extra Tablespoons of water. I used dark chocolate chips for the ganache. It actually made an extra 6 cupcakes (30) with plenty of ganache. I filled them twice as it soaked in. The frosting did not make enough for 30. Even for 24 it will not make as much frosting as the picture, but I don't like a lot of frosting, so it was fine. The Andes mints and peppermint extract pushed it over the top wonderful!
