Chocolate Muffins


So Friday night my sister threw a party at home and to help with the cooking I did some muffins and cookies! This was actually the first time I tried this Muffins recipe that came out in Nestlé chocolate box and they were actually very tasty! I modified a little the original recipe so here is what I did,

Ingredients:

10o grams dark chocolate / 100 gramas de chocolate preto

100 grams milk chocolate / 100 gramas de chocolate de leite

3 tbsp cocoa / 3 colheres de sopa de chocolate em pó (eu usei Nesquik)

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 180ºC. Take 80 grams of dark chocolate and 80 grams of milk chocolate and chop it in a food chopper. / Ligar o forno a 180ºC. Picar numa picadora 80 gramas de chocolate preto e 80 gramas de chocolate de leite.

2. In a bowl combine the butter with the sugar until you obtain a creamy mixture. Beat the eggs with the milk. / Numa taça mistura-se a manteiga com o açucar até obter uma mistura cremosa. Bate-se os ovos com o leite.

3. In another bowl combine the flour, baking powder and cocoa. Add the milk and eggs mixture to the butter and sugar. Stir it. Add the flour, the baking powder and cocoa to the previous mixture. Stir it well again. Add the chop chocolate. Cut the remaining chocolate in little squares and add it also. Stir everything. / Numa outra taça mistura-se a farinha, com o fermento e o chocolate em pó. Adiciona-se o leite e os ovos à mistua da manteiga e açucar. Mistura-se. Adiciona-se a farinha, fermento e chocolate em pó à mistura anterior. Volta a mexer-se bem. Adiciona-se o chocolate picado.

  1. When I saw the muffins, I knew I’d fall in love with this post.
    But when you stuck the M&Ms on top…that really was the icing on the cake!!! (Recently I wrote how I befriended M&Ms and all the memories came flooding back……!)
    YUMMY!!!
    Yesterday, my mum came home with two little muffins. They were toffee and I was a bit skeptical but decided to put my sweet tooth to the test! I was surprised, they were just right! Call me crazy but I had a dollop of custard on the side! I love muffins..I like them when they’re nice and spongy and not too dry!

    • Oh Who doesn’t love muffins? *.* hehe And I won’t call you crazy with that mixture for sure cause I would so do the same!!! I don’t like them too dry either! If you wanna make them at home don’t let them cook for too long and they won’t be dry! 😉
