Hey guys today I thought I would share with you some cute cupcakes I baked in the spirit of Easter!
I was trying to go for little birds nests with eggs in them and they surprisingly turned out also better than I thought they would.
These are a great idea to make for family and friends for Easter and to give away as gifts :)
Who doesn't love Chocolate cupcakes!



1/2 cup (50 grams) Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1 cup (240 ml) boiling hot water
1 1/3 cups (175 grams) all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

4x Cadbury Flake Bars
1 Bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs
Chocolate Frosting (Homemade or store bought) 


1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly butter, or line 16 muffin cups with paper liners.

2.In a small bowl stir until smooth the boiling hot water and the cocoa powder. Let cool to room temperature.

3.In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

4.Then in the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and beat only until incorporated. Then add the cooled cocoa mixture and stir until smooth.

5. Fill each muffin cup about two-thirds full with batter and bake for about 16 -20 minutes or until risen, springy to the touch, and a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean.

6. When the cupcakes are cool add your frosting. In this recipe I used store bought icing but Chocolate Icing made at home will work just as well.

7. After the cupcakes are frosted cover them in the broken up Flake Bars and add 3 Mini Eggs to the centre.

Thanks for reading :)
