  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup whole milk

Baileys Frosting
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup Baileys
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and line a cupcake tin with 12 papers.

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, cream together butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

  3. Add eggs in one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in vanilla and peppermint extracts.

  4. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

  5. With mixer on low speed, mix in dry ingredients in 2 additions, alternating with milk. Mix in each addition until just incorporated. Gently fold in chocolate chips.

  6. Fill cupcake liners about 3/4 of the way with batter. Bake cupcakes for 18-20 minutes, until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

  7. Let cupcakes cool in tin for 5 minutes before moving to wire racks to cool completely.

Baileys Frosting
  1. In the bowl of a mixer or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, mix butter on medium speed until it’s nice and fluffy. Add confectioners’ sugar one cup at a time and beat until well-combined. Mix in salt.

  2. Add the Baileys and beat until combined. If frosting is too thin, add more confectioners' sugar a couple tablespoons at a time.
