Girl Scout Thin Mint Chocolate Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
The Cherry Blossoms trees are starting to bloom (sakura season).
The wildflowers are blossoming with amazing patches of colors.
And them Brownies and Girl Scouts are out selling crack.
Yes, it's almost Spring.
"Would you like to buy Girl Scout cookies?" you just automatically reach in your wallet and pull out a wad.
I made Martha Stewart's One-Bowl Chocolate Cupcake as a base with one sleeve of crushed Thin Mints added (in 2009, the sleeves are shrinking so that is 16 Thin Mint cookies - I believe they had 18 cookies previously).
Frosting is one 8 oz. block of cream cheese and 1 cup of powdered sugar and some vanilla.
I made 24 Thin Mint Chocolate Cupcakes (the frosting was light - if you want to twirl it wider or higher, use 2 blocks of cream cheese and 2 cups of powdered sugar).
