Chocolate Orange Cupcakes

When I saw this recipe, I couldn’t get it out of my mind. I knew I had to make it and even though it was a few weeks between spotting it and trying it, it was worth the wait. These cupcakes are full of Terry’s Chocolate Orange chunks throughout and I added a little ingredient to bring out the full flavour of orange and chocolate – a match made in heaven! The buttercream is made with orange juice and zest and of course you have to top them with slices of Terry’s Chocolate Orange  to complete their deliciousness!

I originally made this cheesecake with crème eggs as they were available in the shops at the time. I had found a mixed pack of mini eggs with different fillings such as the original Crème Egg, Oreo Eggs, Galaxy Eggs …. you get the idea. So if you want to make this and the magic eggs have disappeared, just replace them. You could buy a box of Heroes or Celebrations and use them instead so people get a different taste with each bite 🙂  It makes the cheesecake fun and interesting!

A really simple and fun cookie recipe which the kids will love helping you to make. You could also use M&M’s for a change and as they have different fillings, they would be great fun to eat too! Maybe each person could choose their favourite colour and use that colour only on their own personal cookies 🙂
