Cook Time 10 minutes


  • 4 oz butter or margarine
  • 4 oz caster sugar
  • 2 eggs tightly beaten
  • 3 oz seif-raising flour sifted
  • 1 oz cocoa powder sifted
  • 6 tablespoons chocolate spread
  • 4 oz chocolate vermicelli
  • 18 chocolate buttons


  • Thoroughly grease 18 dariole tins and stand them on a baking tray.
  • Cream the butter or margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs. Fold in the flour and cocoa powder using a metal spoon.
  • Divide the mixture between the tins. Bake in a hot oven for 10 - 12 minutes. Turn out on to a wire rack and leave to cool.
  • Smooth the chocolate spread over the top and sides of the castles and roll in the vermicelli. Top with chocolate buttons.
  • If the chocolate spread is slightly too thick to spread over the cakes, then warm it in a basin in the microwave. Allow 30 seconds on full power.
