Last week the “whole” family got to do something really “Christmassy”.   It was absolutely a rare occurrence for our family – with work, school, college & football – I can never get everybody together!

So last Sunday I pulled everyone out of bed early (and I do mean pulled), packed 3 flasks of hot chocolate and we headed up to Dublin to see the Coca Cola Truck. In our house Coca Cola is synonymous with Christmas.  When the kids where young they refused to open their advent calender’s until the Christmas Coke Ad came on the TV. Even to this day they wait patiently for it to appear on the TV.



It is really funny how TV Advertisements have become so popular over Christmas, with all the big company’s trying to outdo one another!!  John Lewis especially spends millions on its Christmas Advertising,  but our favourite will always be the Christmas Coca Cola Ad which is why it was such a lovely treat to see the Coca Cola truck “in person”

When we got home later on I thought Coca Cola Chocolate Cupcakes would be a yummy way to end the perfect family day out. They don’t take long to put together about 15 mins.  I have made a few Coca cola cakes over the past year,  check out the recipe for my Coca Cola Drizzle Loaf

These little chocolate cupcakes are rich and moist with a hint of cola flavour.



If you want more of a coke flavour you could use a  Cola flavoured buttercream  Hummingbird have a great recipe for that- you can check that out here

I’m sticking with the classics here and going for a rich vanilla frosting which is just perfect topping for the these rich chocolate cupcakes.
