4.
Spoon into the paper cases and bake for 10-15 minutes until springy to the touch. Place on a wire rack to cool completely.
5.
For the chocolate icing: melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering (not boiling) water, stirring once. Leave to cool.
6.
Beat the butter and icing sugar in a bowl until creamy. Beat in the melted chocolate until smooth. Leave to cool and thicken.
