It’s almost March, all I can think about is “Green”!!! Let the pinching begin or kissing, if your Irish!!! I’m a kid at heart, I get so excited for each holiday. I had to come up with a green cupcake that had amazing flavors. Andes chocolate has such a distinct flavor that has the ability to make you addicted. I think you will really love the flavor of this cupcake. The cupcake is so moist and there is a surprise in the middle!!!

  1. This is one of the great things about St Patrick's Day – all the green mint desserts and these look so good. I made some key lime cookies that were a fun twist too – for Bunco the other night. Thanks for this recipe – stopping in today from Lisa's Grand Social.
