100g of Dark Chocolate

1. Pre-heat the oven to 175C (155C fan) and line a 12 case muffin tin.

2. First, make your caramel sauce. In a saucepan add both sugars, the butter and golden syrup, melt under a medium heat and once melted allow to simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the cream and mix well until fully combined. Transfer into a bowl and leave to chill.

3. Secondly, make the shortbread. Cream together the sugar and butter, until smooth and pale. Beat in the floor until it forms a solid ball. Tearing small sections off line each case with a thin layer, pressing down firmly, place in the fridge to chill.

4. For the cupcakes, cream together the butter and the sugar, beat in eggs, followed by the floor and bicarbonate of soda. Once all combined add the 4 tablespoons of caramel.

5. Fill the cases till they are 3/4 full, level off and place in the over for 22 minutes or until cooked through, test using a skewer. Once cooked leave to cool completely.

6. Cut out the centre, fill with the caramel sauce, then replace the cut out back on top and press down.

7. Melt the chocolate and leave to cool.

8. For the buttercream, beat the butter for 5 minutes, until pale. In small batches add the icing sugar, add a teaspoon of milk each time, this helps the mixture combine and not make a mess.

9. Once the chocolate is cooled beat into the buttercream, making sure it is fully combined.

10. Fill a piping bag with a large star nozzle, starting in the centre steadily pipe clockwise, building the spiralled look.

Happy Baking! All my love
