Chocolate fudge cupcakes

200g butter

200g plain chocolate

200g light, soft brown sugar

2 eggs, beaten

1 tsp vanilla extract

250g self-raising flour

Smarties, sweets and sprinkles to decorate

200g plain chocolate

100ml double cream

50g icing sugar

Preheat oven to 140°C fan/gas 3 and place muffin cases a 12-hole tin. Softly melt the butter, chocolate, sugar and 100ml hot water in a large saucepan, stirring frequently. Set aside to cool slightly.

Mix in the eggs and vanilla into the chocolate mixture. Tip the flour into a large mixing bowl, then mix in the chocolate mixture until smooth and glossy. Spoon the mix into cases until just over three-quarters then transfer to the oven to bake for 20-22 minutes. Leave to cool.

To make the icing, melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water. Once melted, remove from the heat, stir in the double cream and sieve in the icing sugar. Spread the icing on each cupcake and decorate with sweets and sprinkles.
