Blogmas 2017 – Day 4

Hello lovelies,

Welcome back to day 4 of Blogmas. Today I am super excited for this post because I am sharing one an easy, festive recipe. If you know me, you know that I love food and I especially like dessert. It is always my favourite meal and, so I am excited to share an inexpensive, simple but delicious chocolate cupcake recipe.


For this recipe I did use a chocolate cake sponge cake mix because I want to do something which was cheap and quick but of course you can make the cake mixture yourself.


  • Chocolate sponge cake mix (Tesco £1)
  • 2 Free range eggs (Tesco £1.25)
  • Cadbury’s Snowballs (Tesco £1)
  • Cold water
  • Milk Chocolate 100g (Tesco £0.33p)
  • Cupcake Cases (Tesco £0.75p)


  • Preheat the oven to 220 degrees.
  • Place 12 cupcake cases on either a baking tray or in a muffin case tray.
  • Mix the contents of the sponge cake mix with 2 large eggs and some cold water.
  • Once mixed into a smooth mixture, evenly split the mixture amongst 12 cupcake cases.
  • Place the cupcakes on the middle shelf on the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes.
  • Take the cupcakes out and leave them to cool for 10-15 minutes.
  • Whilst the cupcakes are cooling, melt the milk chocolate until a smooth consistency.
  • Evenly spread the melted chocolate across the top of each of 12 cupcakes.
  • Finish the cupcakes by placing on some Cadbury’s snowballs on the top.

These cupcakes are so super simple to make, and they taste delicious. I absolutely love them and will be definitely be making them again soon. Chocolate cupcakes are always a favourite and these will not disappoint. They are super inexpensive, simple and delicious. What more could you want?


Thank you so much for reading and I hope that you enjoyed this quick and easy recipe. Leave me a comment letting me know what you favourite quick and simple recipes are or if you try this then let me know what you think. I could actually make these again right now! Anyway, that is it for today, but I will see you again tomorrow with another new post. Much love,
