Paddy's Day Cupcakes!

Obviously I had to bake something green! Mint Aero cupcakes were the recipe of the day :) A delicious chocolate chip cupcake, with creme de menthe butter icing and a mint aero sprinkle, they disappeared in minutes (I'm guessing that's a good thing)!!

3tbsp soft butter, 200g caster sugar, 2 large eggs, 150ml natural yoghurt, 5tbsp milk, 280g plain flour, 20g cocoa, 1tsp bicarb of soda, 115g milk choc chips
GAS6 / 200degrees C

Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one by one, mixing well each time. Then beat in the yoghurt and milk until combined.
Sift in the flour, cocoa and bicarb and stir until just blended. Don't over mix. Stir in the choc chips and divide the mixture into paper cupcake cases.
Bake for 20-25 mins until risen and a skewer comes out clean. Cool in the tin for 5 mins and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

200g icing sugar, 100g butter, 2tsp creme de menthe, a little strong green food colour and a dash of milk.

Beat the hell outta it!! until creamy and smooth! :)

Top with Mint Aero and indulge yourself, these are sooo good xx
