Mint chocolate cupcake

Mint chocolate cupcake

These mint chocolate cupcakes (recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World), are supposed to have a melty chocolate ganache drizzled on top of the frosting. Me being the lazyass that I am, just chopped up a dark chocolate bar instead and sprinkled that on top.

As far as flavor goes, these made for a perfectly acceptable dessert until the day I said to Jason, "Hey, do these cupcakes taste kinda like toothpaste?"

And yes. They did.

That's what I get for using too much spearmint extract. Sometimes more doesn't equal better.
