My chocolate Enchanted Eggs cupcakes are heaven! Moist chocolate cupcakes, rich caramel filling, a beautiful chocolate buttercream swirl and enchanted eggs to top it all off. Gorgeous!

If you’ve not come across Galaxy’s Enchanted Eggs, you NEED to find them! They’re much like Galaxy’s Golden Eggs in flavour, but are rose gold colour which is so very pretty, wouldn’t you agree?

As soon as I saw them in store, I knew I wanted to bake with them! Plus the chocolate caramel flavour combination is always a winner. And when they look so beautiful, you really can’t go wrong!

I’ve decided to make these cupcakes even more special by filling them with caramel too. Of course, you can use homemade caramel if you have some knocking around, but caramel is easily found in store too. If I were to use shop-bought caramel, I would always go with Bonne Maman salted caramel, it is utterly divine!

If you’re a fan of using seasonal confectionery in your bakes, you have to check out my Mini Egg Cookies too! Such fun little cookies!

And if you’re a fan of hot cross buns, don’t forget to check out my hot cross cookies recipe too! My family are always asking me to make this for them, even when Easter has long passed!

Anyways, back to these cupcakes. They are sooo good, you absolutely need to make them! I’m a huge fan of chocolate anyways, but the combination of chocolate and caramel in these cupcakes is extra indulgent and oh so worth all the calories! 😆

Hope you enjoy my Enchanted Eggs cupcakes as much as my family and I do.

Happy baking friends! 😊

Divine and decadent little chocolate and caramel Enchanted Egg cupcakes!

Ingredients

  • For the cupcakes
  • 100 g (½ cup + 2 tbsp) self raising flour

  • 25 g (3 tbsp + 2 tsp) cocoa powder

  • 125 g (½ cup + 2 tbsp) caster sugar

  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)

  • 125 g (½ cup + 1 tbsp) unsalted butter, softened

  • 2 lge eggs

  • 1 tbsp milk

  • For the buttercream
  • 150 g (½ cup + 3 tbsp) unsalted butter, softened

  • 300 g (2 cups + 1 tbsp) icing (powdered) sugar

  • 25 g (3 tbsp + 2 tsp) cocoa powder

  • 2-3 tbsp milk

  • To decorate
  • caramel sauce

  • 2 bags Galaxy Enchanted Eggs

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 160C/325F and line a 12 hole muffin tin with cupcake cases. Sift the dry ingredients for your cupcakes together into your mixing bowl. Tip in butter and eggs and mix together slowly to combine, then turn the speed up and beat for about a minute. Add in the milk and beat again to combine. Spoon your batter into your prepared cases, making sure not to fill over ⅔ full. Pop in your preheated oven and bake for 22-25 minutes until springy to touch. Remove from oven and leave to cool completely before decorating.
  • To make your buttercream, beat your butter until really pale, about 5 minutes. Sift in the icing sugar and cocoa powder in 2-3 goes, mixing well before adding the next batch. Add in as much milk as you need to make it a smooth, spreadable mixture, then beat on high for a couple of minutes until fluffy and beautiful.
  • To assemble you cupcakes, cut a hole out of the middle of your cupcake, fill it with caramel and put the cake ‘hat’ back on (or don’t if you don’t want to!), then pipe or spread on some buttercream and top with your Galaxy Enchanted eggs. Enjoy!
