Mocha Muffins

These Chocolate Muffins with a Mocha sauce make a delicious pudding or tea time treat.  The recipe is adapted from one in Quick & Tasty Chocolate – South Africa

INGREDIENTS

55 g butter

55 g dark chocolate

2 eggs

75g icing sugar

75 g self-raising flour

25 g cocoa powder

FOR MOCHA SAUCE

145 g dark chocolate – broken into pieces

80 ml espresso or strong coffee

50 ml cream

30 ml icing sugar

FOR TOPPING

about 4-6 squares white chocolate

INSTRUCTIONS

Grease muffin tray (I used the very shallow one).

Melt chocolate and butter in microwave for roughly 50 seconds stirring halfway

In separate bowl combine eggs, sugar, flour and cocoa powder, mix in the melted chocolate and butter

Spoon into muffin tray, 1 TBS per hole, bake for 10 – 15 min at 180° C

While baking prepare Mocha sauce, place chocolate, coffee and 45 ml cream into a small saucepan and heat gently.  Simmer for 1 – 2 mins until sauce has thickened slightly, keep warm.

Allow muffins to cool on a wire rack for 5 mins.

Spoon mocha sauce over muffins.  Warm white chocolate in microwave and spoon into a small ziplock bag, snip a corner off the bottom of the bag and pattern over the top of the muffins.

Serve topped with whipped cream
