Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Made this with my best friend – this is my favorite ice cream flavor! Swensen’s mint chocolate chip Sundae will always hold a dear space in my heart and im not exaggerating. Even roadside $1 ice cream sandwiches is no fail mint chocolate. Ser Qi is more of a chocolate fan, but she likes mint chocolate as well.

Sadly, I make mint chocolate less often, as it seems like most of the general population are not huge fans, and describe it as tooth paste even when the flavor is mild. Didn’t stop us from making these though! Enjoy!
