Mint Chocolate CupCakes

This year Hostess came out with a special edition of Mint Chocolate CupCakes. I thought that these would be perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration and had planned on posting about them on Saturday. However, my mind wandered elsewhere, so here is the post a few days late.

The chocolate cake was nice, but I would have gone with a more intense mint taste. To me the balance of chocolate and mint was not what it needed to be to call it Mint Chocolate. It was more of just chocolate with green frosting.

What will be the next Limited Edition?
