Peppermint Mocha Kŭp’kāks

I don't know how many of you have had the pleasure of indulging into Trader Joe's dark chocolate covered Jo-Jo's or not but they are simply irresistible. This cupcake is my take on their scrumptious cookie. It is a basic chocolate cake recipe, actually the third I have experimented with over the last week and it was okay. A little dryer than my normal cake, but very good, not too sweet, not too chocolaty. The frosting is two flavors; red is peppermint and the brown is well, chocolate. It was a great pairing because it wasn't overly minty. The only complaint I have is that the red turned mouths and teeth pink. The first of many holiday cakes. . .more to come.
