We went down the traditional route of butter and sugar first, eggs, vanilla, flour, chocolate chips and then milk. Bake in the oven on approx 160°C (adjust oven to suit) for approx 10-15 mins.
We made two different types of cupcake using exactly the same ingredients.
First we made Strawberry & Chocolate Cupcakes. The choccy chips were melted gently iin a bowl over water and then stirred into the mixture last, making a chocolate flavoured cupcake. After baking in the oven add some sliced strawberry's and a sprinkling of vanilla sugar powder and you have yourself one simple yet fancy cupcake.
The desire to be dainty and lady like was there but not for long!
Then we made Chocolate Treasure Cupcakes.
Rather than mixing the choccy chips through the cake mix we hid 5 little chips in the middle of each cake. Then we carefully covered the chips. The girls loved doing this and took great care counting out and placing the chocolate.
Once baked place on a white plate and dust with some chocolate ovaltine.
Both cakes went down a treat but I think the fun factor was clinched by the chocolate treasure cupcakes! What do you think?
