Easter Nutella and Malteaser Cupcakes

nutella cupcakes

 With Easter right around the corner I thought I would rustle up some yummy Easter goodies! These little beauties are Nutella and Malteaser Cupcakes, they have a delicious nutella and Malteaser base with lashings of butter cream and topped off with Malteaser bunny ears and butterflies.

To make these sweet Easter treats you will need:

The Base:
- 115g Margarine
- 115g Caster Sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 115g Self-Raising flour
- 2 Tbsp. Nutella
- Malteasers

The Topping:
- 175g Icing Sugar
- 115g Margarine
- Green food Dye
- Malteaser Bunny Ears
- Decorations

So now you have your ingredients, let's get baking!

1. Cream together your caster sugar and margarine, once all nice and smooth beat two eggs together and add to the mixture.

2. Now you have all your wet ingredients blended together add a little of your flour gradually, keep mixing until the mixture is smooth in consistency, but not too runny.

3. Melt your nutella in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds and pour this into the mixture, ensure to mix well so you get the yummy chocolatey flavour throughout.

4. Crush your malteasers and add these last to the mixture, these taste amazing when baked!

5. Bake for around 10-15 minutes, until the cakes turn golden brown. You know they're done when you stick a cocktail stick in them and no mixture is left on it when you remove it.

6. Allow the cakes to cool for around 15-20 minutes.

7. Now the fun part! Mix your icing sugar and margarine together to make a thick butter cream, once this consistency has been achieved add your green food dye, keep mixing and adding the colouring until you get the desired shade of green. I went for a bright light green colour.

8. Use your Malteaser bunnies and cut off the ears (brutal I know!) dip the ears into the icing and stick them in the centre of your cakes, this makes it look like the rabbit is popping up out of the cake.

9. Now pipe your green icing onto the cakes using a piping bag. This makes the icing look like grass.

10. To finish add a few bright sprinkles and sugar decorations

11. Et Voila! Enjoy with a nice cuppa and good company! Yum!
