Chocolate Marshmallow Muffins

It was the last day of school for the term so I thought of giving the kids a bit of a treat. I wanted to make a surprised mashmallow muffin where the marshmallow melts and oozes out when you bite into the muffin. However the marshmallow floats up instead so it's not exactly how I wanted it but they tasted great anyway. When I make this again, I will probably add more marshmallows and really push them in so they don't float up.

Chocolate Marshmallow Muffins 

Makes 8 muffins

1 1/2 cups (220 gr) self raising flour
1/2 cup (115 gr) caster sugar
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
8 marshmallows

1 egg
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup cooking oil
1 tsp vanilla essence

  • Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) and place muffin papers in muffin tins or grease muffin tins well with butter.
  • Mix the dry ingredients except marshmallows.
  • Combine all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and whisk lightly.
  • Pour into flour mixture and stir with a fork until just combined. Do not overmix.
  • Spoon one generous tablespoon of batter into muffin tins. 

  • Place the marshmallows in the centre 

  • Cover with more batter until full.

  • Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until skewers come out clean.
  • Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out.
  • Enjoy.
