Easy Chocolate Cupcakes with Lindt ball centres

I had plans to make
this after work one day. But the two banana's in the fridge - were BLACK. Un-usable. Was in a baking mood- badly. SO thought of something i can make, with ingredients i already had at home...

It wasn't till i finished mixing the batter, & thought hm, must find something to add to these plain & boring cupcakes. Saw a big box of mixed lindt balls- hoorah!

3 tbsp butter
1 cup self raising flour
2 tbsp cocoa
1 cup castor sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
12 assorted lindt balls

Preheat oven to 180'

Melt butter, and mix with remaining ingredients until smooth.

Spoon into cupcake cases, add lindt ball into each centre.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, Cool.

Serve warm, or keep in the fridge to serve anytime!

These were yummy on their own. Had some velvet chocolate ooze out (while they were still warm). You could also serve with some icecream for an even MORE calorie dense dessert!

Not only are you a quick thinker - you are also a very creative one! Great idea for the lindt balls - what a great way to use them up! (next to eating them alone of course!)
