Chocolate dipped strawberries and crumbed Oreo Easter cupcakes


A quick post-Easter cupcake treat!  Bottoms up bunnies went down a treat last Easter, and since Easter in our house is all about chocolate, cakes and over eating - these seems like a great option!

Using a Mary Berry tried and tested cupcake recipe, some simple ingredients for the topping (fresh strawberries, white chocolate, Oreo's and chocolate butter cream icing)



Firstly melt the white chocolate to dip the strawberries


Choose a batch of fresh strawberries

Make a mess in Mum's kitchen (haha)



Crush the Oreo's, I crammed them into a plastic bag and smashed them to bits with the rolling pin.



Next slather some butter cream on the cooled and cooked cupcakes!

Cover the butter cream until the Oreo's look like the soil, then you can plant your giant strawberry!
