7 Andes Mint Cupcakes with Mint Buttercream

In case you missed this post on Party Box Design . . . 
A couple of weeks ago, I had a Cupcakes and Champagne Stella and Dot party!
I have shared the Snickers Cupcakes from the party. . .now, I am going to share the
Andes Mint Cupcakes with Mint Buttercream! Enjoy!
Recipe adapted from: My Baking Addiction
1 (18.25 ounce) package Devil’s Food Cake mix
1 (5.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs; lightly beaten
1/2 cup warm water
1 teaspoon of vanilla
24 Andes Mints
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line (2) 12 cup muffin tins with paper liners or spray with nonstick cooking spray. In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, or with a hand mixer in a large bowl, beat together the cake and pudding mixes, sour cream, oil, beaten eggs, water and vanilla until well combined and smooth. Evenly divide the batter amongst the prepared pans. Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until top is springy to the touch. Cool cupcakes thoroughly on wire rack.

Mint Buttercream:
8 oz cream cheese
½ cup butter
3-4 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon heavy cream or milk
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
green food coloring
Beat cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy.  Add powdered sugar, heavy cream and peppermint extract and beat well.  Add green food coloring and stir well. Pipe buttercream onto cooled cupcakes and top with an Andes Mint.
 When you are serving such amazingly tasty cupcakes at a party, you must always think of the hungry husbands at home. . .  :-) 
Pin It!


  1. Love Stella and love Andes! I am pretty sure we both pinned these! I used to make my parents take me to Olive Garden all the time when I was little because they gave you Andes at the end of dinner (and the breadsticks are awesome of course!). I need to make these asap!

  2. Hey Elizabeth Ann,

    I love your recipes and cant wait to make this one! Question for you--do you stick an Andes mint into the batter before baking? I've done that with snickers and milky way cupcakes and I wanted to see if these yummy looking cupcakes used the same approach.

    Thanks for sharing such great recipes!
