This chocolate cupcake recipe uses chocolate and honeycomb.  If looking for a chocolate cupcake recipe that combines the great sweet taste of honeycomb, this chocolate and honeycomb cupcakes recipe is for you.


Ingredients – 6/8 chocolate and honeycomb cupcakes

  • 75g basic cupcake mix
  • 15g cocoa powder
  • few pieces golden honeycomb
  • few dark chocolate shavings
  • Chocolate buttercream – enough to cover the cupcakes

Mise en place

  1. Make the basic cupcake mix with the addition of 15g of cocoa powder – sift this into the mix at the same time as when you add the flour.  Bake in the normal way and allow to cool.
  2. Make a few chocolate shavings.
  3. Make the chocolate buttercream.
  4. Take a few pieces of honeycomb and place in a small plastic bag.  Place on your work surface and gently tap with a rolling pin – you will have a few small golden nuggets of honeycomb.  Keep the honeycomb dust for later.


  1. Take 3 or 4 small pieces of honeycomb and use a skewer to push the nuggets into the cupcakes – try to get them at different levels throughout.
  2. Fill a piping bag fitted with a small star tube with the chocolate buttercream and carefully pipe onto each cake.  Start round the outside and end with a swirl in the middle.
  3. Arrange the chocolate shavings over the top of the buttercream – this represents an old mine shaft.
  4. Finally, dust each chocolate cupcake with the dust from the crushed honeycomb.
