Chocolate Chip Muffins with Galaxy Frosting

We’ve been baking again! It was an utterly miserable day today, I’ve not seen rain like it for a while.  Where’s the summer gone?! Not a great start to the school holidays! But a great excuse to do some more baking.

I hardly ever make chocolate cakes as I’ve had some major fails in the past which put me off! However my boy really fancied some chocolate cake today (and if I’m honest, I did too!), so we made these lovelies!  I know I say it every time, but these were super simple to make!

Preperation Time: 5 mins

Baking time: 15 mins (approx)

This recipe makes about 10 individual muffins.

What I used:

3oz self raising flour

1oz drinking chocolate (it’s all I had in the cupboard!)

4oz caster sugar

4oz butter (as always I used Stork)

2 x eggs

1 x bag of chocolate chips (milk chocolate)

Some individual muffin cases

For the Frosting I used:

Approx 8 cubes of Galaxy chocolate

A tablespoon of butter

A splash of milk

4 x tablespoons of icing sugar

Tescos piping kit

What I did:

Pre heated the oven to 180c.

For the cake mix I literally put all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mixed together!

Then I carefully spooned the mixture in to the muffin cases.

These took about 15 minutes to bake. I then set them aside to cool before icing.

For the frosting/icing:

I melted the Galaxy chocolate over some simmering water in a Pyrex bowl.

As it started to melt, I added the milk and butter to make it really smooth.

I took the bowl off the heat and in the same bowl I added the icing sugar and mixed together until smooth.

I pipped the icing on to the individual muffins – I used my Tesco’s pipping kit which is great.

The muffins were left to cool so the icing set a bit – and then they are perfect and ready to enjoy!
