Chocolate Fudge Jr Mint Centered Cupcakes

See bottom of post for Giveaway Winners!!

I am thrilled with these devilish little cupcakes we whipped up over the weekend. I pressed a few Jr Mints into the centers of  my favorite fudgy cupcake batter and talk about heaven sent! Gooey minty centers is what you’ll find hiding and they go perfect for those midnight snack cravings with a tall glass of milk! Enjoy!!
