Mint Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

I finally brought cupcakes to work! My job just hired three new people (well, about two weeks ago, -__-;;) so I decided to bring some cupcakes to celebrate.

I topped them with a green-tinted cream cheese frosting flavored with peppermint extract and mini chocolate chips mixed in. They were decorated with Andes mints--suggested by my creative husband.
