Christmas cupcakes

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 🙂

For Christmas this year I’ve decided to bake Christmas cupcakes and a chocolate chip banana cake as we had some left over bananas to use up.

For the Christmas cupcakes I used my “go to cupcake recipe” but added a chocolate sauce to the mixture to make gooey chocolate filled cupcakes. I decorated with red / pink icing and Christmas themed sprinkles / iced decorations.
