Ginger Cupcakes with Chocolate Gingerbread Stars {Recipe & Review}

Ginger Cupcakes
The time of year is getting closer when I begin to think about mulling some cider and filling the air with the aroma of Christmas spices, like ginger and cinnamon. Today I made some simple ginger cupcakes to kick start that feeling.

Makes 12
120g SR Flour
120g light brown sugar
90g Greek vanilla yogurt
30g butter
2 eggs
half a tsp ginger
Mix all of the above until smooth.
Spoon equally into 12 bun cases.
Bake at 170c - 180c for 18 minutes.
Leave to cool.
Spread buttercream on top - I added some ginger to this too - and place your chocolate star on top.

The milk chocolate gingerbread star tops the cupcakes off perfectly and makes me feel just a little bit Christmassy. The star is one of eight that come in a box, neatly wrapped and presented, from Tesco's latest seasonal range. The chocolate is thick and chunky and topped with caramelised biscuit and ginger crumble and a white chocolate swirl.

I also sampled the above Chokablok Santastic Cinnamon chocolate tree. I think they knew my love of these flavours but don't think the delivery man appreciated his package - spot the jigsaw effect. The tree is good quality chocolate decorated with a white chocolate swirl and topped with cinnamon and gold dusted malt balls and caramelised biscuit and ginger crumble. I couldn't resist topping it with a star. Both of the products taste of a high quality chocolate - which hints at the fact they have been created by master chocolatiers behind Hotel Chocolat and Harrods - but retail at a more affordable price: £4 for the stars and £5 for the tree. A perfect stocking filler.
