Tiny Teddy Cupcakes
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 14-15 minutes
Makes: 28 servings
100g butter, softened
1tsp vanilla extract
⅓ cup (80ml) milk
¾ cup (165g) caster sugar
1 cup (160g) self-raising flour
2 tbsp (20g) cocoa
28 Arnott’s Chocolate Tiny Teddy, to decorate
Extra cocoa, for dusting
100g butter, softened
1 cup (160g) icing sugar
1 tbsp milk
Preheat the oven to 170°C. Line three 12 hole mini muffin pans with 28 paper cases.
Beat the butter, egg, vanilla, sugar, flour, cocoa and milk in a bowl with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute or until ingredients are combined. Increase speed to medium and beat for 4 minutes or until mixture has changed to a paler colour.
Spoon the batter into a large piping bag and pipe batter evenly throughout the paper cases.
Bake the cupcakes for 14-15 minutes or until cooked through. Leave the cupcakes in the pan for 5 minutes before turning, top side up, onto a wire rack to cool.
Make the buttercream icing by beating the butter, icing sugar and milk in a small bowl with an electric mixer until combined.
Spoon buttercream icing into a large piping bag fitted with a large plain tube. Pipe the icing on top of each cupcake, top with a Tiny Teddy and dust with the extra cocoa.
