- Line a cupcake/muffin pan with cupcake liners.
-To make the chocolate cups, melt chocolate either in microwave oven or over the double boiler. If using the microwave make sure to melt in short intervals, first for a minute and then for 20 sec intervals.Keep stirring the chocolate in between to check it is melted. Do not overheat the chocolates
- Once the chocolate is melted, pour about a tablespoon in each cupcake liner and coat the base and sides of the inside of the liner with the chocolate, just like the picture below.


                              

- Place the cupcake pan in the fridge for atleast an hour for the chocolates to set.
