A few weeks ago, I did a little baking for Mr. NK as I would be missing Valentine's day with him.
Little did I know that cupcakes would be following me throughout that weekend! No complaints here!
The cupcakes were inspired by the mint patty recipe I saw in Food Network magazine.
I mostly used the chocolate cupcake recipe from Ina Garten,
but doctored it up with a
peppermint buttercream layer...
...topped with a chocolate ganache.
On days when warmth is the most important need of the human heart, the kitchen is the place you can find it.
