Chocolate Kinder Bueno Cupcakes

Last week I made these amazing cupcakes (if I say so myself) for my mum and they were so good that I had to share the recipe with you! They're a chocolatey sponge, topped with a lot (!) of chocolate buttercream icing, and a chunk of a Kinder Bueno I found the recipe on Jane's Patisserie; if you've been a reader for a while you'll know that I've used her recipes in the past and they've always been amazing - these did not disappoint! This recipe makes 12 cupcakes.

Items needed:
12 cupcakes cases and cupcake tray
Large bowl
Mixer/electric beater
Bowl/saucepan to melt chocolate

175g Butter
175g Light Brown Sugar
3 Large or 4 Medium eggs
140g Self-Raising Flour
35g Cocoa Powder
1tsp Vanilla Extract
2 - 3 tbsp Milk

Buttercream Icing
150g Butter
300g Icing Sugar
100g Chocolate (I couldn't find any Kinder chocolate so I used Dairy Milk)
Kinder Bueno Bars to top

- Line your cupcake case tray with cupcake cases, and preheat your oven to 170C (I had mine on the equivalent of 200C because I knew my cooker would need to be higher but amend this to what suits your oven type!)
- Cream together the butter and sugar, and then add the eggs, flour, cocoa powder and vanilla extract. Beat together until combined, and add a splash of milk if the mixture seems a bit stiff.
- Spoon the mixture into your cupcake cases - I used some larger Bake Off cases and the petal like detail on the sides ended up helping the icing stay on top of the cake! Bake in the oven for 18 - 20 minutes or until cooked through (after 22 minutes mine were ready but again this is completely dependent on your oven and how it likes to cook!) Leave to cool.
- Once the cupcakes are cool it's time to make the icing! Melt the chocolate via your preferred method and leave to one side. Cream the butter in your bowl, and add 1/3 of the icing sugar and beat again until combined. Repeat this until all the icing sugar has been incorporated.
- Add in the melted chocolate and continue to beat until you have a beautifully mixed icing ready to go on the cupcakes!
- Top the cupcakes with your icing (I have no idea how to pipe icing so I just plop it on with a spoon) and a chunk of Kinder Bueno to each cupcake - I used one chunk but if you feel like sticking two chunks in you go for it.

I can vouch that these went down a treat with my mum, my dad, myself and Tom. I think a testament to a good cake is how long they hang around for - these did not last long! I will definitely make these again, but for now I'll scroll through choosing what I want to make next. What are some of your favourite sweet treat recipes? I'm always open to making more cake!
