choc chip cupcakes

these cupcakes with little bits of chocolate in them were both delicious & something different from the usual cupcake. very easy too!

300g (2 cups) self-raising flour
155g (3/4 cup) caster sugar
1 x 250g pkt Nestle milk choc bits
60ml (1/4 cup) milk
125g butter, melted
2 eggs, lightly whisked
1 tsp vanilla essence

MethodPreheat oven to 180°C. Line thirty-six 30ml (1 1/2-tbs) capacity mini muffin pans with paper cases.

Combine the flour, sugar and choc bits in large bowl. Combine the milk, butter, egg and vanilla essence in a large jug. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.

Spoon the mixture among the prepared muffin pans. Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centres comes out clean. Set aside for 2-3 minutes, then turn onto a wire rack. Set aside for 1 hour to cool completely.
to decorate.

I spread the cupcakes with vanilla icing & topped with glitter sprinkles.
