Triple Choc Mini Muffins

It was midweek and I had promised to bring in something special to work and I had planned to make macarons. I decided to try a new macaron recipe and would you believe it, they failed massively! So in a last minute panic I did a quick survey of the pantry and found chocolate melts, SCORE! Muffins aren't usually the first thing that comes to mind when I have chocolate to work with but I was feeling inspired and so triple choc mini muffins it was.

I've never had much success with muffins turning out nice and looking professional, but these babies were pretty perfect. I found a great recipe at food.com and then tweaked it to suit what ingredients I had in my pantry. Originally I was going to leave them plain on top but had some left over white chocolate so put a bit on each, I'm glad I did, they look much better.

  • Extra white chocolate, melted

What you will need to do

  1. These look good April. I will try to have a go at these soon! Mum

  2. Are you taking those photos yourself? These muffin ones look like a professional took them.

    1. Thanks Mel, yeah I take the photos myself. I did a bit of research as to how to take good photos of food, if I had a decent camera they would look even better!
