Choc Orange V Mint Choc Chip

Being National Chocolate week, i thought why not make some extra chocolately cupcakes. So in a moment of inspiration from browsing the christmas aisle at the supermarket i decided on chocolate orange and chocolate mints (chocolates that i normally associate it with christmas).

I made a batch of double chocolate chip cupcakes using the followinga receipe that i found on the Appliances online blog with a few little tweaks of my own.

65g Caster sugar
65g light brown sugar
125g Self raising flour
25g Choc chips
2 Eggs
125g butter
3tbsp milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
15g Cocoa powder


Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl
Add butter and eggs and mix thoroughly
Add milk and mix,
Divide into cupcake tins - this made 12 generous cakes
Cook in oven at 180 (20 mins)

Preparing the receipe

Buttercream topping:

12oz icing sugar
6oz butter

I made a batch of plain buttercream, then seperated into two bowls to create each of the toppings use the follow additions:

Chocolate Orange:

1 teaspoon orange flavouring
Orange food colouring
1 chocolate orange bar grated very finely
Choc orange pieces to decorate.

Chocolate Mint:

1 teaspoon mint flavouring
Green food colouring
Choc pieces finely grated
Choc chips to decorate

I then piped the buttecream onto the cupcakes and added the chocolate toppings

Ready for tasting

I loved being able to create two completely different flavours using one cupcake receipe.
