Starbucks Holiday Inspired Cupcake Recipe

Hi kittens i just realized that i never have shared any recipes with you guys and since the holiday are coming up i thought this would be the perfect one to share.
I created this recipe myself a few weeks ago and its inspired by the white chocolate peppermint mocha found at Starbucks.

For the cake batter:
1 stick of butter (unsalted) chopped
5 oz of a good quality white chocolate chopped
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of whole milk
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup self rising flour
1/2 tsp peppermint extract( you can add more if you like it minty)
1 egg

Preheat oven to 325F
Line your cupcake pan recipe makes 12-14
Combine butter sugar milk and chocolate in a small pot stir over low heat till melts.
Take off the stove and pour into a bowl let cool 15-20 min
Stir together the flours and stir in after cooled then whisk in egg and peppermint .
Bake 25-30 min (keep an eye on it )
While cooling you can start the frosting

Frosting Recipe
4 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
6 tablespoons white chocolate coffee i used ghirardelli white chocolate almond you cant really taste the almond flavor. If you can't find white chocolate coffee use your starbucks drink lol
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or i prefer vanilla bean paste
After the cupcakes cool frost and enjoy!!

Sadly i didn't get any pics of them but I'm making them for a Christmas party Friday so ill share pics!
