Cupcakes with Pastel Mint Candy Frosting

I made the frosting with butter, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla.  Then I crushed a bag of pastel mints.   Cover the bag with a dishcloth and then crush with a meat tenderizer or a rolling pin until you have very small pieces.  I added a tiny bit of strawberry jam to the frosting for a light pink color then poured in the crushed mints and mixed it all together.   I used a large ziplock bag and snipped the end to make a frosting bag.  Super easy and much prettier and tastier than using mint flavoring.  You get little bites of candy in the frosting depending on how fine you crush the mints.
Halfway done. 

Crushed mints.
