SPOOKY SPIDER CUPCAKES

250g butter

250g dark chocolate

6 eggs

310g caster sugar

70g plain flour

90g plain yoghurt

500g icing sugar

30g dark cocoa powder

48 Tic Tacs

200g liquorice strips cut into 4cm long, thin strips

Preheat oven to 170C. Melt butter and chocolate in a bowl over simmering water.

Whisk eggs and castor sugar on high for 10 minutes. Fold through chocolate and butter and then flour.

Spoon mixture into 24 large cup cake pans and bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool.

Mix together yoghurt and 300g of the icing sugar and spread over cupcakes. Mix together remaining icing sugar, cocoa and just enough water to make a smooth icing that is not too runny.

Spread onto tops of cup cakes to create spider bodies and heads. Use tic tacs for eyes and liquorice strips for legs. Makes about 24.
