Thin Mink Cupcakes Recipe


  • One package Maja's Chocolate Cake & Cupcake Mix 
  • ⅓ cup applesauce
  • ¼ cup oil
  • ½ cup boiling water
  • ½ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp mint extract
  • ½ cup melted semi sweet chocolate
  • Garnish: Fresh mint leaves



    Start by preheating your oven to 350° Fahrenheit and prep your cupcake pan with liners. Begin by adding the dry mix to a large bowl, and then add in the applesauce, oil, and milk. With a hand mixer or whisk, combine the ingredients until it is a smooth consistency. Once it reaches this consistency, add in the mint extract. Lastly, beat in the boiling water until everything is well combined.

    Pour the batter into the cupcake pan and place in the oven for about 18-20 minutes. The cupcakes are done when a toothpick comes out clean!

    After the cupcakes have cooled completely, you can begin working on the chocolate topping. Take the semi sweet chocolate and melt it in the microwave in short increments until the consistency is thin and smooth. Add a spoonful of melted chocolate on each cupcake and spread it all around the top of the cupcake.
