Prep

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease large muffin trays or line with muffin cups.
To prepare peppermint herb, place ¼ cup of dry herb into a blender or coffee grinder and pulse the herb until it’s a fine flour, measure out 2 TBSP for recipe. Note: Use herbs within a year to ensure strong aromatics. Older herbs will lose potency.
In one mixing bowl add all of the dry ingredients and blend.
In another mixing bowl add the wet ingredients and whisk. 
Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients using a spatula and gently mixed together.
Scoop batter into tins ¾ of the way full.
Place in oven for 10 to 11 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Chocolate Frosting

Prepare a double broiler. Add water to a pot ¼ of the way full and turn on heat to medium high. Place a mixing bowl over the heated water. Take 1/3 cup of chocolate chips and place into the bowl. Use a spatula and mix the chocolate just until it starts to melt. Remove bowl from water and add 2 T of butter. Mix until melted. Frost over slightly cooled muffins.
