PEPPERMINT BUTTERCREAM FROSTING: Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer 3 minutes, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; gradually add powdered sugar, vanilla, and salt; beating until blended. Add crushed peppermint candies and beat 5 minutes until mixture is blended and smooth. MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP FROSTING: Beat butter on low speed with an electric mixer 2 minutes, until creamy. Add vanilla; beat 1 minute. Gradually add powdered sugar and salt; beat 3 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add candies and food coloring; beat 2-3 minutes until creamy and blended. Each recipe makes approximately 2 1/2 cups frosting...enough for 24 cupcakes.
