    I thought this was a great recipe and the peppermint flavour was surprisingly nice. I increased the peppermint extract to 1 teaspoon, increased the cocoa powder and used some fresh milk instead of dry buttermilk. Then I made Kitten's buttercream icing and added some peppermint extract to it, a few drops of green colour and viola: the perfect combination of mint and chocolate.

    The only reason that I didn't give this 5 stars is that I would have liked a stronger chocolate flavor. I found that the peppermint gave almost a tangy taste to the cupcake which was oddly enjoyable. I left them un-iced and I had to substitute lactose free sour cream (2 tbsp) for the dry buttermilk. I wasn't able to find it. They took no time at all, which was great. Infact I whipped them up during making lunch, took no longer than 5 minutes and then into the over. Will be making these to take camping in a few weeks I'm sure.
