Snickers' Muffins

I'm reposting this as i loved this recipe and i'm planning to remake it with some more addition :) Hopefully i end up making it unless the lazy bug bites me :)

Its the last day of the term and LM has her first of her quarterly holidays :) She loves muffins so I got this idea after a lot of thought about what muffin to make.I found this recipe at Sweetpeas'. I didn't to the filling part and also the frosting even though it looks oh so tempting!

To make 12 mini muffins :
Cocoa powder 1/4 cup
Hot water 1/4 cup
All purpose flour 1cup
Baking Soda 1/2 tsp
Baking powder 1/2 tsp
Course Salt a pinch
Unsalted butter 8 tablespoons
Sugar 3/4 cup
Egg 1 (at room temp)
Vanilla extract 1 tsp
Yogurt 1 tablespoon
Vanilla 1 tsp
Snickers' bars regular size 1 n half chopped

  • Preheat the oven to 250C ( thats the highest on my oven, the original one calls for 350C).Line the muffin tray or i just greased the tray.
  • Mix Cocoa powder 1/4 cup & Hot water 1/4 cup into a smooth paste in a cup.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk the flour,baking soda,baking powder, salt and set aside.
  • In a saucepan, heat the butter and add sugar mixing and stirring occasionally(this forms lumps of caramel don't worry tastes fine.i was worried i ruined the mix!).Let it rest for a while.
  • Beat the egg and vanilla extract with yogurt and vinegar until all is mixed well.
  • Add the cocoa + water mixture to this egg mixture, mix well.
  • Add the butter+sugar mixture to the flour and mix well.Next add the eggy wet mixture into the flour mix and mix well until all the flour is mixed in well.
  • Once the flour is all mixed well, just before spooning into the muffin tray, add the chopped snickers' and mix well.
  • Fill 3/4the the cup and let it bake for 16 minutes( since mine is a mini muffin tray, the original recipe asked for 18-20 mins in a regular oven and regular sized muffins)

  • Let the muffins cool and serve with chocolate sauce!

I loved them so much so i went crazy taking photographs!

Snickers in the muffins are a great idea!

Have fun with the muffins!
