145 g dark chocolate – broken into pieces

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.

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.
