Fudge Cups
1/4
cup butter or margarine, softened
1
package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
3/4
cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1/4
cup powdered sugar
2
tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
1
tub (16 ounces) Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy chocolate frosting
  1. Heat oven to 350ºF. Line 24 small muffin cups, 1 3/4x1 inch, with paper baking cups, if desired. Coarsely chop enough mints (about 15) to measure 1/2 cup; reserve for Minty Fudge Filling. Coarsely chop remaining mints for topping; set aside.
  2. In small bowl, beat all Minty Fudge Filling ingredients except mints with spoon until well mixed; stir in mints.
  3. In large bowl, beat 1/4 cup butter and the cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour, powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons cocoa and the vanilla.
  4. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Press each ball in bottom and up side of each muffin cup. Spoon about 2 teaspoons filling into each cup.
  5. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when filling is touched lightly. Cool slightly; carefully remove from muffin cups to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Frost with frosting. Sprinkle with remaining chopped mints.
