Preparation

1

Chocolate Peppermint Cream Cupcakes

Preheat the oven to 190°C (170°C Fan, Gas Mark 5). Line 10 cup cake tins with brown Cupcake Cases. In a mixing bowl, beat the margarine with the sugar until pale and creamy-light in texture. Stir in the Natural Vanilla Extract.

2

Gradually whisk in the eggs, then sift the flour, cocoa and Baking Powder on top. Add the Chocolate Chips and using a large metal spoon, carefully fold the dry ingredients into the eggy mixture.

3

Spoon into the Cupcake Cases and bake on the middle shelf in the oven for 16-18 minutes until risen and just firm to the touch. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

4

For the icing, sift the icing sugar into a mixing bowl and add the natural peppermint extract and 20-25ml (4-5tsp) warm water to make a smooth, spreadable icing.

5

Spread the icing thickly over each cup cake and sprinkle with Chocolatey Strands before the icing begins to set. Allow the icing to set for a few minutes before serving.
