Thin Mint Cupcakes
Do you guys watch Scandal? I discovered it mid-Season 3 and immediately binge-watched the first two seasons on Netflix (I think I got through them all in, like, 2 weeks) and impatiently waited for the third season to be available for binging. Once I caught up, I watched weekly…religiously. I could not get enough.
The past few seasons I’ve lost the “can’t get enough” feeling a bit, but since it came back from break in January, I have been totally hooked again. Honestly, Shonda Rhimes is a genius. I really need to read her book ASAP. If you’ve read it, leave a comment and let me know what you think!
Anyway, I watched Scandal while I baked these babies! (And I’m catching up on HTGAWM as I write this post – I’m a total Shonda addict!)
I live in a tiny Boston apartment with the tiniest kitchen known to man. I don’t have a dishwasher so I love recipes that use as few dishes as possible! Don’t get me wrong, I ADORE my KitchenAid Mixer, but I don’t always love having to wash it. These cupcakes only use the dishes in the photo below, and then I re-used the batter bowl and grabbed a hand mixer to make the frosting.
Also, aren’t these cupcake liners so cute?? I have a big box of cupcake liners – all different holidays and colors and themes! So unfortunately I have no idea where these came from, but I thought they were perfect for a Girl Scout cookie dessert!
I know I’m a little past Girl Scout cookie season, but go ahead and bookmark this post if you’ve already eaten all your Thin Mints, and then buy an extra box next year!
