Quick…what’s your favorite ice cream?  If you don’t say Mint Chocolate Chip, you’ve lost some points with me.  It’s seriously the best ice cream ever.  I mean, you get fresh breath afterwards.  That’s pretty awesome.  I’ve been wanting to make cupcakes with big scoops of “ice cream” looking frosting for a while now, and since March is bringing out all the minty treats, a chocolate mint cupcake was a no brainer!
