SNOWMAN CUPCAKES with a chocolate base

90 grams all-purpose flour
65 grams cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
200 grams granulated sugar
78 ml vegetable oil
120 ml milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup mashed banana
12 Dandies marshmallows
Vanilla frosting
Black icing
Funfetti or sugar pearls
to decorate
Preheat oven to 180c and line a muffin baking pan with 12 cupcake liners.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the mashed banana, sugar, oil, and vanilla extract.
Stir in milk, then add the rest of the ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt), and mix until just combined but do not over mix. They batter won’t be very thick, sort of runny and that’s okay.
Pour the batter into liners, and bake for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. When completely chilled, decorate with the vanilla frosting and put a marshmallow on each cupcake.
Draw faces and arms using the black icing, and make buttons out of the sprinkles/funfetti.
