CHOCOLATE BIRDS NEST CUPCAKES

Easter cupcakeI love Easter for one main reason; guilt free chocolate consumption. These double chocolate cupcakes make for the perfect Easter time treat or a cute gift for a loved one.

What you will need:
250 grams unsalted butter
250 grams dark chocolate, melted
2 cups caster sugar
2 cups self raising flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup Dutch cocoa powder
2 eggs
12 mini solid Easter eggs
Frosting:
1/2 cup butter
2 cups icing sugar
1/2 cup Dutch cocoa
1/2 cup milk
Mini eggs for decoration

Easter cupcakeWhat to do:
Preheat your oven to Moderate and grease or line your cupcake tray/s. In a large bowl beat together the butter and sugar until the mixture has whitened and become smooth. Beat in your eggs and milk then sift in the cocoa and flour. Fold in the melted chocolate and half fill your cupcake tray. Place a egg into the center of each of the cups then pour a little extra batter on top of each eggs so the eggs are covered and the trays are about 3/4 full. Bake for around 20 minutes or until a skewer comes out. Allow your cupcakes to cool whilst making your frosting. To make your frosting cream your butter in a large bowl then gradually sift in the icing sugar and cocoa. Pour in your milk a little at a time, whilst stirring until you reach your desired consistency. Using a tiny nozzle pipe your icing onto your cooled cupcakes in a circular motion around the perimeter of the cupcakes to create a nest like effect. Decorate by placing a few mini eggs into the center of the nest and your done! Makes around 12 cupcakes. Enjoy and Happy Easter!
