Hello Choc Chip Cupcakes

These little Choc Chip Cupcakes  are so easy to make. And do you know what if you really want to you can make them heart shaped too?  To do this just use a ball of silver foil between the cupcake case and the tin <3 Ta-Dah! Heart shaped cupcakes! So flipping easy

These little beauties are quick to make and totally delicious, in fact the bake time is 15 minutes! Now you don’t get much quicker than that. They are so easy get the kids making them!

Everyone will love them from kids to very big kids! They are perfect for the kids to make. If you’re trying to be good then ditch the topping? But why would you?
