Are you making this? 
225 g self-raising flour
4 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
225 g caster sugar
225 g unsalted butter; sofened for the cupcake
4 Eggs

Green foos colouring
100 g plain chocolate chips

Original recipe makes 18



1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.

2. Place 18 cupcake cases into cupcake tins.

3. In a medium bowl, seive the flour, cocoa and baking powder, and set aside.

4. Beat the sugar and butter together in a large bowl until it turns smooth. Add the eggs one by one, and beat after each addition. Add the flour mixture slowly, and stir until well combined. Stir the mint essence and chocolate chips in, then spoon the mixture into the cases, (not to the top, as they will rise). Bake for 20 minutes or until ready.

5. Take out the tins from the oven and allow to cook for 5 minutes, then remove the cupcakes and cool them on a cooling rack.

6. To make the icing, beat the butter and icing sugar in a bowl until it becomes smooth and creamy. Stir in the mint essence and add a small amount of the food coloring to make the icing a minty green colour.

7. Ice the cupcakes and sprinkle with chocolate chips.

Its best to ice the cupcakes when they are completely cool, or the icing may melt and not look its best. [I posted this recipe.]
