Triple Chocolate Muffins

I'm always on the search for chocolate recipes, probably due to having a chocoholic boyfriend who always wants me to bake something chocolate related! So when I found this recipe on Rosie's blog I had to try it. They turned out amazingly and will definitely be a staple muffin recipe. So tasty and filled with both white and milk chocolate chips for lots of chocolately goodness!








Recipe
100g dark chocolate, melted
50g unsalted butter
50g light brown soft sugar

50g light muscovado sugar
300ml milk

2 eggs
2tsp vanilla extract
60g cocoa powder
250g self raising flour
1tbsp baking powder
100g milk chocolate, chopped
100g white chocolate, chopped



Firstly, preheat the oven to 180ºC and line a muffin tin with paper muffin cases. I got around 16 smaller muffins from this recipe.

Melt the dark chocolate and butter together in a heatproof bowl either in the microwave or over a pan of simmering water.


Once melted, remove from the heat and stir in the sugar. Next, mix in the milk, vanilla and eggs.



Sift the flour, baking powder and cocoa into the chocolate mixture and fold in gently. Add most of the chopped chocolate - but save some for poking into the top of each muffin.


Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cases, and put a few chocolate pieces on the top of each muffin. Bake in preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until skewer inserted into the centre of the muffins comes out clean.




Cool on a wire rack, then store in an airtight container.





Enjoy!

Chocolate Orange Cookies

Terry's chocolate orange is my absolutely favourite chocolate, and so I just had to make these cookies! The chunks of chocolate orange combined with the gooey chocolatey cookie is just so amazing - definitely give them a try if you're also a Terry's fan! :)
Recipe
  • 110g unsalted butter
  • 100g light muscovado sugar
  • 250g light brown sugar
  • 55g cocoa powder
  • 2 medium eggs
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 260g plain flour
  • 125g terry's chocolate orange - mostly chopped into chunks but keep some aside to put on the top
  • 1 tsp orange extract (or of course the rind of an orange if you're more prepared than me!
Firstly, preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.

Melt the butter in a saucepan or in the microwave, then mix in both of the sugars and the eggs. 


Add the cocoa powder, salt and baking powder, stirring until combined.
Stir in the flour a couple of tablespoons at a time.


Add your chocolate and stir through.
On a baking tray lined with baking paper, put a tablespoon of dough at a time on in a ball shape. Press in a slice of terry's chocolate orange. 
Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Leave them on the baking tray to cool slightly, then when they’re firm enough, transfer to a wire rack.


Enjoy!
