Hello Choc Chip Cupcakes

These little beauties are so easy to make,  heart shaped if you fancy it?  Just use a ball of silver foil between the cupcake case and the tin <3 Ta-Dah! Heart shaped cupcakes!

These little beauties are quick to make and totally delicious! 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?
