110g butter or margarine

110g caster sugar

2 medium eggs

Preheat the oven to 180C.

Place muffin cases into a cupcake tin.

Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually add in the eggs, then fold in the self-raising flour and cocoa powder with a metal spoon.

Spoon the mixture into 12 muffin cases and bake for 15-20 minutes until well risen and firm to touch. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

To make the butter icing, place the butter in a bowl and beat until soft. Gradually add in the icing sugar while beating, then add in enough milk to make the icing fluffy and spreadable. Add in the cocoa powder and beat until completely combined.

To decorate, place the butter icing in a piping bag containing a star nozzle, pipe round the edge of the cupcakes leaving a small hole in the middle. Sprinkle the butter icing with chocolate vermicelli and add three Mini Eggs to the middle of each cupcake.
