Wendi Peters’ Chocolate Chip Muffins


Wright’s Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix 500g

Water 200ml

Vegetable Oil 60ml (4tbsp)

Milk Chocolate Chips

For the topping:
Butter or Margarine 200g

Icing Sugar 200g

Cocoa Powder 2 heaped tbsp
Hot Water 1tbsp

Sprinkles of your choice – we used coloured balls

Method (Makes 12 muffins):

Place the cake mix, water and oil into a bowl and mix well for 1-2 minutes.
Place 12 paper muffin cases into a baking tray and spoon the cake batter evenly between them.

Sprinkle a small handful of chocolate chips evenly on top of the batter in each of the muffin cases.

Bake at 200C (390F), gas mark 6, for approximately 20-25 minutes or until springy to touch.

Allow to cool before decorating each muffin.
For the ‘topping’, mix the cocoa power to paste with the hot water. Sieve the icing sugar into a mixing bowl; add the butter or margarine and the cocoa paste until smooth and pipe onto the cakes.

Decorate with your topping of choice.

Alternatively you can use a ‘ready-made’ chocolate topping / frosting.

Wright’s top baking tip: These chocolate muffins are the perfect show stopper to bring out at a birthday party or an indulgent afternoon tea with friends.
