To make the chocolate sponge I first creamed together 170g baking spread and 170g caster sugar.
I added 3 eggs and mixed them in.
Then I mixed in 140g self raising flour, 30g cocoa powder and 1/2 tsp baking powder.
I divided the cupcakes into cases (I used some brown ones and some gold foil ones as I wasn’t sure which would look best!)
I baked them on 180C/160C Fan/350F/Gas Mark 4 for 25 minutes.
When they were cool I used a cupcake corer to remove a section from the middle.
I filled each hole with some Carnation caramel.
I made a buttercream by mixing together 150g baking spread, 300g icing sugar and 1 tsp vanilla extract. I then added 75g melted Galaxy chocolate and mixed until smooth.
I piped the buttercream onto each cupcake to resemble a nest, then placed 3 Golden Galaxy Eggs into the middle.
These cupcakes are so decadent and indulgent! The sponge is light, the caramel is rich and the buttercream has that hint of chocolate flavour that is fully satisfied by the shimmering golden eggs. And if you don’t tell your friends and family about the caramel inside, they will get a yummy surprise when they dig in!
