Mars Bars Muffins

Someone from work today emailed me about the recipe for these wonderful muffins. If you like chocolate and caramel, no point in trying to make the perfect cupcake with home-made caramel sauce (although that also gives pure satisfaction). Rather, chop some Mars bars and make these wonderful muffins!

Ingredients

  • 175g soft unsalted butter
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 6 Mars bars, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 150ml milk

Method

  1. Cream the butter and sugar in a big bowl until you get a soft and pale fluffy mixture.
  2. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. add the vanilla essence and beat that in too.
  4. Sift the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder together in a bowl, then add t the mixture and stir that in with a wooden spoon or a spatula. Do not overmix.
  5. Pour in the milk and mix into the batter.
  6. Preheat the oven to 200 degree Celsius and grease and line a 12-muffin hole tray or use muffin cases (I usually go for the latter).
  7. Add the chopped Mars bars to the mixture and give one final stir, then divide the mixture evenly and bake for about 15 minutes.
  8. Take out of the oven and leave to cool before tasting it or you’ll burn your tongue!

Tips

  • Don’t overfill the muffin cases as the mixture will rise quite a lot in the oven and you risk overflowing the tray.
