This is a recipe off my Kitchen Towel..and I was asked by another JAP member if I would post this recipe so she could see it better...so here it is. Enjoy!!!

I have no idea who to give credit to for this recipe as there is no name on the kitchen towel...
**(this is not my original recipe, BUT, it is my towel and the photo was taken by ME)**

NOTE by CinStraw:
I frost these with a peppermint flavored glaze and top (garnish) with crushed peppermint candy.

ALSO THE RECIPE ON THE TOWEL DOES NOT GIVE AN OVEN TEMPERATURE TO BAKE THESE CUPCAKES....SO, I'M ADDING THAT YOU BAKE IN A "PREHEATED 350°F OVEN".
