Let’s face it, there are times when we all crave a rich, gooey chocolate muffin. Believe me, whipping up a batch of these is quicker and more satisfying than running down to the shops. Plus, you can add another layer of chocolatey goodness by topping them with ganache frosting.

Anais made this batch of chocolate muffins. She believes that too much chocolate it only just enough and added a chocolate freckle to the ganache. If you’re short on time don’t bother with any frosting. These babies are amazing eaten straight out of the oven. I actually prefer them still warm without any toppings.

Chocolate Muffins Melt & Mix Method (By Hand)

  1. Add butter to a large mixing bowl and melt in the microwave.
  2. Add the milk, sugar, eggs and cocoa powder to the butter.
  3. Mix the ingredients with a wooden spoon.
  4. Add the flour and chocolate chips to the batter. Combine.
  5. Pour into muffin tin and bake as per recipe.

    Muffins are delicious. Thank you for the great recipe. I have made them twice now and both times when. I’ve done the final step of adding the SR flour and choc bits that after the 30 seconds of combining that it hasn’t combined at all. I’ve had to redo on a faster speed to get the flour to mix in. Not sure if anyone else has had the same issue but it’s happened twice to me now.

    I have been searching for the best chocolate muffin recipe for years. And this is the closest I have found so far! Moist, chocolatey with a crisp top. Going to try this again today but with a dob of Nutella on top yum!

    These are simple sensational! A truly perfect, cafe style, moist muffin mix. We froze as soon as cooled and have been putting in lunchboxes and they defrost amazingly and most importantly stay moist after freezing. We didn’t need to use ganache but as an extra special treat if not freezing, it would take them next level.
    I subbed 50g of butter for vegetable oil as I didn’t have enough butter and worked out great.
    Highly recommend!

    Love this recipe, thank you!
    I find I need to go to speed 3 when combining the flour and chocolate nibs. A big hit in our house!!

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      I’m so pleased your household enjoyed the recipe. I think I will change the directions to Speed 3 as I did a little mixing by hand as I filled the cupcake wrappers. Thanks for the message 🙂
