Bonnie at Sweet Life tells a hilarious story about baking for friends for the holidays, and shares with us this lovely chocolate cupcake with peppermint cream cheese frosting. She talks about daydreaming about sugar, butter, and chocolate... and after seeing these cupcakes, I think we'll all be doing the same.

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies with Royal Icing

I absolutely love the combination of chocolate and peppermint together. In fact, this is so well known that someone just sent me a TUB of homemade dark chocolate-peppermint ice cream for my birthday. Amazing.

So obviously, I was incredibly excited to see Kelsey's adorable peppermint-shaped cookies. And when I discovered that the chocolate batter is infused with peppermint? Well, Kelsey and I just became BFF.
