Instructions

Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

  • Preheat your oven to 350° F / 175° C.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and pinch of salt. Mix well all of the dry ingredients.
  • In another bowl add the eggs, oil, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, mint extract, whole milk, and Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil. Whisk well until combined and CBD oil is dispersed throughout the mixture.
    Important: Mix thoroughly at this step for a few minutes to ensure the Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil is dispersed throughout the mixture. This will ensure each cupcake has a more even dosage of CBD.
  • In thirds, add the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients, mixing well between each addition with the hand mixer.
  • Finally, add in the chocolate chips and fold with the spatula or beat slowly with the hand mixer until dispersed.
  • Line the muffin tin with muffin cups and using an ice cream scoop, scoop out from the batter and fill the muffin cups just ¾ of the way full.
  • Bake them in well heated oven for about 15-17 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Then pull them out and set them aside to cool completely.

Mint Buttermilk Topping

  • In a mixing bowl add the softened butter and cream it with the powdered sugar using the hand mixer.
  • Add the whipping cream and beat until thick a buttercream forms.
  • Finally add the vanilla extract, green food coloring and mint extract. Mix until fully incorporated.
  • Transfer the filling into a piping bag fitted with star tip and decorate the cupcakes, adding the fresh sprigs of mint and chocolate chips on top.
  • Chill in fridge before serving.
  • Enjoy your Simply Add CBD™ Mint Chocolate Cupcakes!

Notes

You want to fill the muffin cups with just ¾ of the batter, so you can leave space for them to rise in the oven without overflowing!
Also, the reason why it is best to use an ice cream scoop is because it provides a way to get even portioning for the cupcakes.
You can store these cupcakes up to 5 days in fridge.
When changing the recipe to make more or less servings, make sure to calculate your Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil requirements accordingly to reach your desired dosage of CBD. This is also true if you decide to make larger (or smaller) sized cupcakes, but less (or more) total quantity of cupcakes with this exact recipe - your CBD dosage per cupcake will increase or decrease respectively with the size change.
To figure out the dosage per cupcake, use the values below to calculate your total CBD used and divide by the number of cupcakes you made. This is the estimated CBD per cupcake.
CBD dosage per Cupcake (Total ml of Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil used  X  25 mg)  /  # of cupcakes made
eg. When making this exact recipe:
(6 ml X 25 mg) / 15 cupcakes ≈ 10 mg CBD /cupcake
1 ml of Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil ≈ 25 mg of CBD
.75 ml of Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil ≈ 18.75 mg of CBD
.5 ml of Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil ≈ 12.5 mg of CBD
.25 ml of Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil ≈ 6.25 mg of CBD
