So here I am after lunch ready to bite into a york peppermint patty & low & behold there are EGG WHITES in the ingredients. I totally though they were vegan. It's as bad as when I found out Junior Mints had gelatin in them. Gross.

I just found a recipe we can all try. I know it says cupcakes, but the person who posted it says it's "An Eggless, milkless cupcake that comes out like a peppermint patty".

Chocolate Peppermint War Cup Cakes

1 1/2 cups unbleached flour

1-1 1/4 cup sugar [do not subsitute]

1/2 cup cocoa

1 teaspoon baking powder

8 ounces applesauce [or fruit puree such as bananas or prunes]

1-3 tablespoon soy milk, add last to consistancy for cup cakes

2 tablespoons Braggs apple cider vinegar

1/2-1 teaspoon Creme De Menthe extract

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon chocolate flavoring (optional)

Note Soy milk:If you don't feel you need it and don't want to omit it using water as the original recipe called for, add a teaspoons If you feel you need it you may add more than 3 tablespoons.

Note: you may use peppermint in place of the Creme De Menthe: 1 tsp peppermints gives a toned down Altoids flavor which is very good if you include the chocolate extract. Both flavors are rich and don't conflict but compliment. Try less 1/2 tsp for a lighter flavor. 1/4 tsp should work and give you a light peppermint edge to a chocolate cup cake.

Note I have used flavored applesauce withthout a problem such as apple strawberry.

Preheat oven to 350F and line a 12 standard muffin tin with papers. Sift the dry ingredients together. Mix the wet ingredients and add to the dry mixing until smooth. Fill the muffin tins evenly 3/4 full. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until a knife comes out clean. Remove from tin and cool completely on rack before frosting. A sprinkle of peppermints on top of your favorite frosting is not amiss for the finish.

12 servings

or I buy Nestle After Eight European chocolate. They're sold at CVS pharmacy and the ingredients are vegan.

They named them war cupcakes because the recipe is from WWII when there were rations on eggs, milk and other "food" items. This recipe is what our great grandparents made when they couldn't afford or there weren't any eggs. Funny how they only resort to veganism in poverty. Silly fools. Veganism is delicious anytime.
