For the cupcakes: heat the oven to 190C,375F, gas 5. Place 10 paper cases in a bun tin.

Beat the butter in a mixing bowl until soft and light. Beat in both sugars and beat until light and fluffy.
3.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time until well blended. Sift in the flour, baking powder and cocoa and fold in gently until incorporated. Stir in the milk and chocolate chips.
4.
Spoon into the paper cases and bake for 25 minutes until golden and firm to the touch. Leave in the tins for 5 minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool.
5.
For the chocolate topping: melt the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering (not boiling) water. Sift in the confectioners' sugar and water and beat well unti smooth. Quickly spread the topping over the cakes; it will set quickly.
