No - you are not seeing things, we have actually put chocolate AND broccoli into the same cupcake, and it tastes really great too. This is such a clever way to sneak some greens into afternoon tea time or perhaps picnic snacks, especially if you're trying to tempt fussy eaters. You could cover these with some lovely gooey chocolate icing to make them even more delicious, but they're fine as they are.

Allow the cupcakes to cool on a wire rack (decorate with chocolate icing if you wish) and enjoy with a well earned cup of tea or coffee. These would be a clever way to add a bit of healthy eating to a children's birthday party too.
