Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Cupcakes Ingredients
1 package H-E-B Candy Cane Sandwich Creme Cookies
1 package Peppermint Bark, for decoration (optional)
1 package H-E-B Feel Gluten Free to Indulge Chocolate Cake mix (mix according to directions on box)
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), room temperature
3 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
cupcake liners

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix H-E-B Feel Gluten Free to Indulge Chocolate Cake mix according to directions (do not bake). Line cupcake tins with liner, place a H-E-B Candy Cane Sandwich Creme Cookies in the bottom of each liner. Take 1/2 of remaining cookies and chop coarsely and add to cake mix. Fill the cupcake tins. Bake for 15 minutes (or according to box directions). While cupcakes are baking make the frosting.
Baked Cupcakes Cream together butter and cream cheese. Add vanilla, then add powdered sugar slowly until blended well. Chop remaining regular-sized Candy Cane cookie sandwiches very fine (I put the cookies in the food processor instead of trying to chop them up super fine and it worked out really well). Add to frosting. After cupcakes have cooled frost and decorate with Peppermint Bark.
