Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes

This past Christmas I wanted to make chocolate peppermint cupcakes and found the PERFECT recipe at Glorious Treats.  And they didn't disappoint!  I made the cupcakes for two different parties and they were a hit.  I slightly modified the frosting recipe by adding 2-3 teaspoons of peppermint extract (to taste) so it really had a nice minty flavor.  Also, I used crushed candy canes to top my cupcakes instead of peppermint bark.  Oh just thinking about these is making my mouth water!
