Prepare the Snowflake Easymix Chocolate Muffiin mix as directed on pack, adding the vanilla essence to the wet ingredients.

Spoon mixture into mini paper cups, filling each about two-thirds full.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for about 7 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.

For the icing, beat the butter and icing sugar together. Add the remaining ingredients and beat to a smooth, spreadable consistency. Pipe the icing onto the mini cups and top with grated chocolate.
