Ingredients
100 g dark chocolate, chopped
1 cup (250ml) water
125 g butter, softened
1 1/2 cups (330g) caster sugar
3 Coles Brand Australian Free Range Eggs
1 1/2 cups (225g) self-raising flour
1/2 cup (75g) plain flour
1/4 cup (25g) cocoa powder
20 Mini Oreo biscuits, to decorate

Chocolate Sauce
50 g dark chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup (60ml) thickened cream
1 tbsp brown sugar

Oreo Buttercream
6 x 23 g pkts Mini Oreo biscuits
250 g butter, softened
3 cups (480g) icing sugar mixture
2 tbsp milk
150 g white chocolate, melted, cooled


Preheat oven to 160°C. Line 20 x 1/3 cup (80ml) capacity muffin pans with patty cases. Combine the chocolate and water in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Set aside for 15 minutes to cool.
Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and sugar until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the chocolate mixture and stir to combine. Add the combined flour and cocoa powder and stir to combine. Divide the mixture evenly among prepared pans. Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centres comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Meanwhile, to make the chocolate sauce, combine the chocolate, cream and sugar in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until the chocolate melts and the sauce thickens slightly. Set aside to cool completely.
To make the Oreo buttercream, place the Mini Oreos in a food processor and process until fine crumbs form. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter until very pale. Gradually add the icing sugar, beating well after each addition. Add the milk and beat to combine. Add the white chocolate and beat to combine. Add the Oreo crumbs and beat until well combined.

Spoon the buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a 2cm fluted nozzle. Pipe the icing onto each cupcake. Drizzle each cupcake with chocolate sauce and top with a Mini Oreo to decorate.
