Triple Chunky Choc-Chip Muffins


Be warned.

These muffins are very dangerous. They are packed full of chocolate which will go straight to your hips. If eaten warm the chocolate will be melted and will drip down your chin and will make you look like you have fallen into the river in Willy Wonkas factory.

One will not be enough.

If you are still reading you have an addiction: I suggest you visit here

If you are not ready to confront this demon yet then join me in making the best chocolate chip muffin you will ever have eaten in your entire life! Afterwards we can join rehab together....

125g Plain Flour
25g cocoa-powder
1tsp Baking Powder
1/2tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
50g each of Dark, White and Milk chocolate, chopped into chunks.
1 Egg, beaten
150ml Sour Cream
50g Brown Sugar
40g Butter, melted then cooled
Extra chocolate chunks to sprinkle on top before cooking

Preheat oven to 180C (350F)
Sift flour, cocoa, baking powder and bicarb of soda in a large bowl. 
Stir in choc chunks. 
In a separate bowl combine egg, sour cream, brown sugar and melted butter. 
Beat with a fork and add to dry ingredients. 
Fold together gently, don't over-mix. 
Mixture will be very dense and sticky.
Fill paper cases in a muffin tin.
Sprinkle extra choc chunks on top and bake for about 20mins or until well risen and cooked through. 
Cool in pan for about ten minutes.

If you are unable to eat them all straight away they can be kept but must be reheated in the microwave for 5-10 seconds before eating to melt all the chocolate chunks again!
