You Won't Lose Em In The Dark Cupcakes!

For St Patricks Day
Well I'm laughing so hard at these cupcakes....think I over did the green just a tad! still like the title says, you won't lose em in the dark ;)  in fact they just might be visible from here in Melbourne to the Emerald Isle...they taste good which is the main thing.

100g dark chocolate

1 cup (250ml) water

125g butter, softened

1 1/4 cups (255g) brown sugar

3 eggs

1 1/2 cups (225g) self-raising flour

1/2 cup (75) plain flour

1/4 cup (30g) cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 160°C. Line 18 x 1/3-cup (80ml) capacity muffin pans with paper cases. Combine the chocolate and water in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and sugar until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well between each addition, until just combined. Add the flours and cocoa powder and stir until just combined. Add the melted chocolate mixture and stir to combine. Spoon evenly among the lined muffin pans. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool

....Happy St Patricks Day
