Ingredients

Cupcakes:

  • 100g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 extra large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup self-raising flour

  • 250g CSR Chocolate Buttercream Icing mixture
  • 3 tsp water
  • Marshmallows
  • Desiccated coconut

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 150°C fan-forced. Line 12 x ⅓ cup capacity muffin pans with paper cases.
  2. Combine butter, sugar and chocolate in a saucepan and heat gently until melted and smooth. Allow to cool slightly.
  3. Whisk the eggs into chocolate mixture one at a time, followed by vanilla, until smooth. Fold in flour and cocoa. Spoon batter between prepared paper cases. Bake for 25 mins until just cooked. Cool in pan for 5 mins before removing to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  4. For buttercream, place butter in a bowl and using electric beaters, mix until smooth. Add icing mix and water, mixing well. Transfer to a piping bag with a small round nozzle. Pipe in a circular motion on the top of cupcakes and decorate to resemble bunny bottoms.
