Preparation time 10mins
Cooking time 30mins
Preheat oven to 350°F and fill muffin pan with cupcake liners.
Mix eggs, water, oil, and cake mix together. Add peppermint extract to batter and blend thoroughly. Fill pan and bake for 18 to 20 minutes; allow to cool.
Fill pastry bag with COOL WHIP frosting and pipe onto cupcakes. Top with peppermint crunch and bark if desired. Serve instantly or store in freezer until ready to eat.
This was my first time trying the recipe, I may try a tablespoon of peppermint extract next time to increase the flavour. I also recommend frosting the cupcakes right before serving or keeping them in the fridge until ready to serve.
