Lindor cupcakes

I am a lover of chocolate. I mean, who isn't? and I do believe that Lindor chocolate is by far one of  the tastiest of them all. Thankfully, my friend Katharine agrees and as it's her birthday tomorrow I thought it would only be right to treat her...but in a slightly different way by combining two of my favourite things! You too can have a go if you want to experience the wonders of a chocolaty foodgasm. The recipe below is for two people- so, perfect for you and somebody special :-)

You will need...
  • 60g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 60g brown sugar
  • 75g wholemeal flour
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 3 Lindor chocolates
  • 75g butter
  • 175g icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

What to do...

  • Preheat the oven to 180 
  • Mix together your butter and sugar, then add the egg followed by the flour and cocoa powder for your typical cupcake mixture
  • Put 1 to 2 tablespoons into the cases and even out
  • Then cut your Lindor chocolates in half and scoop out the incredibly delicious soft bit that's found inside. Put those bits to one side (these will be used for decorating the cakes later) and then cut the outer part of the chocolate balls up and sprinkle some inside your cases
  • Layer with another few tablespoons of mixture and add the remainder of the chopped up Lindors. (They will melt on top and make it extra gooey. yum)
  • Place in the oven for about fifteen- twenty minutes and then take out and leave to cool
  • For decorating, make your buttercream by combining the butter and sugar and then the cocoa powder.
  • Next form a mountain on top of your cakes and finish by placing those incredibly delicious soft bits amongst it. (Saving a bigger piece for the top)

    I really hope this makes sense because I am so bad at explaining, sorry!!
