Malteser Bunny Chocolate Cupcakes

Malteser Bunny Chocolate Cupcakes

Oh my gosh! If you love Malteser bunnies, I promise you that these these chocolate cupcakes are going to blow your sugar-filled mind (they certainly blew mine!). So after lots of serious research, I’ve definitely decided that Malteser bunnies are my favourite Easter chocolate treat. Turkish Delight mini eggs, Caramello eggs, Lindt bunnies and Crunchie eggs are all up there too (hey, I never said I was picky), but Malteser bunnies definitely take the cake… so to speak!

To make these chocolate cupcakes, I used my favourite cupcake recipe. It’s the easiest thing ever and is totally fool-proof. It’s my go-to chocolate cupcake recipe. If you like moist, dense, delicious chocolate cupcakes, this is the recipe for you! They also take no time at all to whip up, which is perfect (especially if you’d rather be watching the new season of Revenge or reading a trashy magazine… umm yes!!).
