Terry's Chocolate Orange Cupcakes Recipe

Hey beaut's!

I've finally started my festive bakes and cakes.....YASSSS! And what better way to start than with a Terry's Chocolate Orange Cupcake recipe! Theres something so festive about a Terry's Chocolate Orange isn't there, I remember when I was little it just wouldn't be Christmas without finding a chocolate orange in my stocking and it's stuck with me forever I must admit! These cupcakes are so quick and easy to bake and they really do capture the exact taste of a chocolate orange, so if your a fan of Terry himself you need to bake some of these!
What You Will Need For The Cupcakes
135g unsalted butter
110g self raising flour
1/4tsp bicarbonate of soda
100g caster sugar
25g dark brown sugar
15g cocoa powder
2 eggs
1/2 tsp orange extract OR zest of 1 orange
1.5 tbsp milk
1 tsp treacle

What You Will Need For The Buttercream
150g unsalted butter
300g icing sugar
15g cocoa powder
1/4tsp orange extract
2-3 tbsp milk
Terry's Chocolate orange to decorate

How To - Cupcakes
* Pre-heat your oven to gas mark 4 /180 and line a muffin tin with your cupcake cases.
* In a large mixing bowl, throw in all of your cupcake ingredients and mix with an electric whizzer until well combined, this is such an easy 'throw it all in' recipe!
*Once your mixture is completely smooth pop a heaped tablespoon of the cupcake batter into each cupcake case and bake in the oven for around 15 minutes or until the top of the cupcakes are springy to the touch, then transfer onto a wire rack to cool.

How To - Buttercream
* In a large bowl, beat the butter until it becomes super whippy, then start adding the icing sugar and cocoa powder slowly to avoid the dreaded icing sugar cloud and mix until combined. As usual if the buttercream is too stiff then pop in some milk until you get your desired constancy. If you want to keep that chocolate orange flavour going into your buttercream then simply add a quarter of a tea spoon of the orange extract and mix until combined.
* Pipe or spoon the icing on top of the cupcakes and decorate with some Terry's Chocolate Orange, I also sprinkled over some little gold star sprinkles to add a festive touch, and voila!
