Milka Oreo Chocolate Cupcakes

This week the kind people at Cybercandy sent me some delicious Milka Oreo chocolate, and they gave me inspiration for this recipe from their blog. Have fun! :-D

Ingredients

100g softened butter
150g self raising flour
150g caster sugar
3 tbs milk
Half a tea spoon of vanilla extract
2 large eggs
4-5 shakes Galaxy hot chocolate powder
Bar of Milka Oreo chocolate


For the Icing

2 tbs Nutella
100g softened butter
225g icing sugar
Splash of milk
Bar of Milka Oreo chocolate


Method


1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C and put muffin cases into a 12 hole tray.

2. Mix the butter, flour, sugar, vanilla extract and eggs together with a wooden spoon until light and airy. Then add the Galaxy hot chocolate and mix again.

3. Spoon the mix into the cases and put a square of Milka Oreo chocolate on top of each cupcake. Put into the oven for 25 mins until golden brown. Test that they are ready by gently sliding the end of a skewer or a knife into the cupcake. If it comes out clean it is cooked.

4. Place onto a cooling rack and let them cool until there is no heat from the cupcake (this is so the icing doesn't melt).

For the icing

1. Slowly add the icing sugar to the butter until nice and creamy. Add a dash of milk to make it a little bit creamier (don't put in too much milk or the icing will go runny!). Scoop the Nutella into the icing and mix.

2. Pipe the icing onto the cupcake.

3. Put a square of the Milka Oreo chocolate onto the icing.




Many thanks to Cybercandy and I hope you have enjoyed making this. Me, my daddy, mummy and sister Megan all loved these cakes as we all love chocolate!
