  • Preheat your oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4 (reduce for fan ovens). Line a 12 hole muffin tin with cupcake cases. Stir the hot water with the cocoa until smooth and leave to cool.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together and set aside.
  • Cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, then add the vanilla extract. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Add the sifted flour mixture in one go. Then the cooled cocoa powder mixture.
  • Spoon the cake mix into the cupcake cases and bake for 18 minutes or until a cocktail stick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Place on wire racks to cool completely.
  • Cream the butter, gradually adding the sugar until smooth and creamy. Mix in the vanilla and milk. Pipe onto the cupcakes using a piping bag. Leave to set for about 20 minutes.
  • Melt the milk chocolate in a deep bowl and carefully dip the top of each cupcake into it.
