If our neighborhood kids have any hope getting candy from us this year it’s solely because I made these cupcakes to distract Mr. Dessert For Two from the Halloween candy bowl. We have discussed his unusual predilection for mint (including peanut butter and mint jelly sandwiches). I’m afraid I’ve been abusing my powers with mint. Just this weekend, I filled my purse with my homemade peppermint patties and used them to ease him through the process of buying new furniture for our living room. We went into a store looking for a couch. After a few hours and a few peppermint patties, we came out with a couch, two chairs for sitting by the fireplace, and a gorgeous reclaimed wood table. The power of mint.
I hope y’all have a wonderful and safe Halloween! Stay out of the candy bowl ;)
