Chocolate Chip Tiny Teddy Cupcakes

Tomorrow my little 2 year old nephew visits and he‘s been a little trooper adjusting to the arrival of his new baby brother. So…yesterday morning while I was eating spoonfuls of Milo (no judging please) I thought about making him some chocolate chip cupcakes with a chocolate/Milo icing. Now it is sad to report that not all the tiny teddy biscuits made it to their final destiny on top of a cupcake: some were scarified for a greater cause, ie providing me with a sugar hit .
