This is a great recipe! I used this to cover 12 regular size cupcakes and 24 mini's, with left over frosting for at least another 6 regular size cupcakes! I used pure peppermint extract so started with 2 teaspoons first then added the last teaspoon after trying. 3 tsp worked great! Didn't add the food coloring because I wanted you use red sugar sprinkles. This is a great recipe! Thank you for sharing! :)
