Back To School Treats: Double Chocolate Muffins

My family are not the greatest fans of muffins...but these scrumptious ones are an exception. Perfect as a back to school treat!
Double Chocolate Muffins
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
1/2cup sugar
100 grams melted butter
2 eggs
1/2 cup strong cocoa drink (the original recipe calls for strong coffee but we are not coffee drinkers!)
1 cup chocolate chips
Sift flour, cocoa and baking powder into a bowl, stir in sugar. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Melt butter. Beat egs and cocoa drink together. Add butter,egg mixture and chocolate chips to the dry ingredients. Mix quickly with a fork until ingredients are just combined. Three quarter fill greased deep muffin tins with mixture (I often use cupcake wrappers to save time). Bake at 190 degrees for 20 minutes or until muffins spring back when lightly touched. Serve warm and dusted with icing sugar. Makes 10-12.
I bake most weekends to prepare for the school week ahead and these muffins keep well and are a great addition to your repertoire.
