chocolate caramel koala ‘self-saucing’ cupcakes for two
'Cheat's' self-saucing chocolate caramel cupcakes ... for two! Measure everything out quickly by tablespoons, stir it all together and bake for 20 minutes and you'll have a delicious oozy caramel chocolate dessert. If you can't find chocolate koala bears to stick in the top, any similar little treat will do the trick!

Preheat oven to 350F/175C and line a muffin tin with 2 regular-sized cupcake liners of your choice. (put them in the centre of the tin if you can)
Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a smallish bowl, then add the milk, oil and vanilla and stir until just combined.
Divide the batter between the 2 cupcake liners, then bake for about 20 minutes or until a skewer stuck into the centre of a cupcake comes out clean.
Leave to cool for at least ten minutes (longer is fine), then push one chocolate caramel koala (or substitute!) into the centre of each cupcake (I made a little slit with a knife first so that the koala slipped in better). Put on a plate and microwave for about 30 seconds or until the chocolate treat has melted into and over the cupcake (It's best to take the cupcake wrapper off first)
Serve neat, with a ball of ice cream or a dribble of fresh cream. Don’t burn your mouth!
For my chocolate muffins, I slightly adapted this recipe from The Comfort of Cooking. Thank you! Caramelo koalas may not be available where you live, but you can use Freddo Frogs or any similar caramel-filled chocolate treat you like instead! The first time I made these I added a few white chocolate chips, which looked (and tasted) quite nice, but you don’t have to do this. The dessert ends up quite rich enough! It’s easy to make this recipe for 4. Obviously just double the ingredients!
