Six Sources Of Chocolate In Each Muffin

I swear, I am starting to spam all subscribers emails! Every day, I have a story to tell or a recipe to make – what’s a girl to do but write in her blog right?

320I mean, what was on the agenda today

  • Make 1st part of my post for tomorrow (it turned out delicious so I am already on a high) – CHECK
  • Read –  CHECK
  • Sleep – ?
  • Moan since school is starting in less than 3 days (I bet all of you have to a be little happy because then I can’t spam you daily :P) – CHECK (I multitasked)
  • Sleep some more – ?

What have I gone and done? Blog, blog, blog, blog, blog and more blog stuff – anyone else here the word overdrive?

And that overdrive includes impulsively making a muffin recipe I was meant to make in a couple of weeks time (I plan ahead, so kill me)
But I had a craving for them. Them namely being filled with 1, 2,3, 4 and 5 different types of chocolate sources. Oh I am good :D – who needs this ‘triple chocolate’ nonsense?

222You want to know what they are? Of course you do silly! (grins evilly)

  1. Cocoa Powder (a classic)
  2. Chocolate Malt Powder – Ovaltine (a twist)
  3. Mars Incorporated chocolate – Galaxy, Mars Bar, Twix and  Maltesers (though it was supposed to only be Maltesers – I ran out…) + a hidden Hershey’s caramel kiss…
  4. Chocolate Icing – store bought but did the job well
  5. Nutella – the greatest chocolate substance in the world

Not bad for a muffin aye? An remember, this is classified as a breakfast food so…

Since I am feeling so happy right now what with the sugar and success adrenalin pumping through, I am going to share with you a recipe that will blow your socks off (even if you are wearing shoes!)

130And there are so many delicious recipes coming your way these weekend – I do believe I am going crazy in an attempt to pretend school is never going to happen – aah well, may as well enjoy it while I do :D

P.S. There are actually 6 types of chocolate sources – chocolate chips as well :P

These are one of the stickiest, most moist muffins ever – almost a fudge like consistency at times. Every delight they hide is wrapped in a gorgeous chocolate-y batter :)

Therefore I dub this delicious chocolate lover’s dream of a recipe:

The Hexa-Chocolate Malted Muffins
Source: Adapted from Sarah Cupcakes

Makes: 12

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups wheat flour (healthier, denser and makes for a fudgier and stickier muffin)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup chocolate malted powder
  • 1/2 cup (113g) butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbs caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbs light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 cup full cream milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 991 cup chopped mixed chocolate bars + couple of extra reserved, chopped
  • Sprinkling of chocolate chips

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees C. Line a muffin tin with 12 cases
  2. In one bowl sift all dry ingredients excluding chocolate bars and chips
  3. In another bowl mix all wet ingredients together
  4. Make a well in the dry ingredients bowl – slowly stirring, add in wet ingredients and just combine
  5. Stir through chopped confectionery, reserving the extra
  6. Pour into cases 3/4 full and top with chocolate chip and reserved candy pieces
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until skewer inserted comes out clean and muffins are springy when touched
  8. Let cool for 15 minutes before removing from tin. Let cool to room temperature and store in the fridge after decoration.
  9. Enjoy :)

Decoration

  1. 810Once slightly cooled, cut out a small hole from each cupcake and spoon in some Nutella (since the muffin is warm, it melts throughout)
  2. Place a Malteser over the hole, covering it (surprise!)
  3. Drizzle with chocolate icing

How do I know these were absolute heaven on a plate?

  1. I ate it (DUH!)
  2. My brother ate it – he rarely tries these small, impulsive dishes of mine but today he did and he loved it – quote “This is so yum” – he even liked the Nutella inside it (can you believe he is a non-Nutella!)
  3.  This Picture :D

Have fun with these mes amis – you know you want to ;)

    Your post, as always makes me hungry. Lol! I love all your creations. Chocolate is my favorite food group;) and you hold me in suspense waiting for what’s next!

  5. Oh my gosh! These muffins look crazy rich and insanely good. I am the master at spending tons of time in the kitchen when I have a long to-do list. So, if you need anymore tips on how to avoid your to-do list let me know. ;-)

    • Aww that is so sweet! I can only dream of owning one actually – only 16 yrs old that is still my dream job with serving coffee and beautiful treats to the world :)

      Cheers

    WOW have some choclate :-) How are you not bouncing off the walls – caus’ I know if I made these I would end up eating them all and end up in a sugar coma!

    Your posts make me high just by reading it. What is going to happen if I start eating chocolate like you or my daughter? It looks heavenly with that candy and chocolate drizzle. I should make this for my daughter, of course the wheat one. She will be very happy and thankful to you.

    • Just by reading? Wow you will be bouncing off walls when you actually eat these :P
      I am sure your daughter would adore these!!! If she eats chocolate like me, she will definitely be in heaven – Enjoy :D

      Cheers

    If you weren’t already a chocoholic, making and eating these will certainly do the trick. A few of these will certainly get you through the first few days back to school. Best wishes with your studies.

    • I can actually imagine the conversion from ‘meh, chocolate’ to ‘oooh, chocolate’ :P
      I hope your right about these getting me through school (at least my stomach won’t be complaining!)
      Thanks for the good wishes :D

      Cheers

  9. Blogging can take over sometimes, but that is when I say it is break time. Great recipe here, definitely one that will bring out the chocoholic in all of us. The picture of the broken muffin on the plate is calling me-yum! Enjoy the weekend.

    • Moderation I suppose really is the key (and school keeps that in check for me :P)
      Thanks for the kind words – I made these yesterday and already I am missing them (I really need to go to Chocaholics Anonymous…)
      Have a nice day :D

      Cheers

  10. Sure that is a heavenly looking cake, oozing with all the chocolaty flavors. Just like you, at times its blog, blog and more blog. I must say I do get obsessive with blogging but have learned to mallow down now. Oh!!!! I would love to sleep in too, esp in the mornings hours but at night, I am like the owl, wide awake and suppose this is the time I hit on blogging.

    • Thanks :D
      And I am glad you know how to mallow down – I think I just bake like a maniac when I have the time a.k.a holidays and then during school I go for the weekend!
      And I too cannot sleep well at night and then during the day am a baking zombie :P

      Cheers
