Chocolate And Bar One…

I baked these for a colleague who has just found out she’s pregnant with their second baby- and she asked if I would mind bringing cupcakes since she’d be sharing an office with me for a couple of days.
This is my current favourite chocolate cupcake recipe, and these each had half of a mini-Bar One baked inside and I decorated them with choclate icing and chocolate discs. I used too much butter in these so they were very mousse-like when still in batter form, and then overflowed the cups! Yummy nonetheless.
