Chocolate muffins

Closeup of chocolate muffin

Quick and easy to make chocolate muffins. If you are a fan of chocolate pastries, these cupcakes are just for you! They are delicious on their own, but also perfect with frosting. What if I told you that they are very easy to prepare and ready in just 20 minutes? Thanks to the nuts, the cupcakes taste like Nutella. If you prefer sweeter desserts, you can substitute dark chocolate with milk chocolate. For even fluffier cupcakes, be sure to only mix the batter until just combined.

This basic recipe is perfect for experimenting and adding your own ingredients, such as fruit or jam. If you don’t have paper molds, don’t worry. You can grease the form with butter and sprinkle with cocoa, use heat-resistant ceramic dishes or handmade baking paper cups.
