Ready to bake in just 10 minutes! The outsides have a crispy cookie-like texture and the insides are deliciously fluffy. These muffins can be made easily with kids and taste great fresh out of the oven.
Place the butter and half of the chocolate into a heat-resistant bowl and heat and soften it in the microwave for 30 seconds (at 600 W).
Stir the sugar into the mixture well with a whisk.
Break an egg into the batter and mix it in.
Heat the milk up in the microwave for 20 seconds (at 600 W) and mix it into the batter.
The batter should be nice and thick now.
Switch to using a spatula and sift in the combined and pre-sifted flour and baking powder. Then fold it into the mixture with the spatula.
Break up the rest of the chocolate and add it here.
Fill the muffin cups up halfway with the batter using the spatula then bake them in an oven preheated to 170°C for 20-22 minutes.
Test the muffins by inserting a skewer or toothpick into the middle and if it comes out clean, they're ready. Please try eating them while they're still hot!
You can make these cookie-shaped muffins by dropping the batter onto a tray and baking it for 18 minutes instead.
Story Behind this Recipe
You can whip up a batch of these muffins quickly with your kids! They're very simple but the crispy outsides, fluffy insides, and melty chocolate make these muffins irresistible when they're just out of the oven. We make these a lot at home. You can re-heat these muffins in a microwave to make them yummy and fluffy again.
We use 2 bars of chocolate at home, one for the batter and one for the chocolate chips. If the chocolate and butter don't melt together very well, put the mixture back in the microwave for a further 10 seconds. Try adding a bit of rum for a more sophisticated flavour.
