Dark chocolate brandy muffins

Yesterday was my birthday but as I was at work all day I had no chance to bake anything. So today I made these wonderful, tasty and super caloric muffins.

I've always been a chocolate lover! It tastes so good.... *____*
Sadly nowadays I can eat chocolate quite rarely, only few times a year. So the birthday becomes a really good reason to eat it without having too many regrets :P

I didn't feel like to bake plain chocolate muffins. When I saw that we still had half bottle of good italian brandy, the idea came at once: YEAH! I'LL MAKE BRANDY CHOCO MUFFINS!!! :D
The brandy left a really nice taste and it worked well with the chocolate.

For this recipe I used dark chocolate, which wasn't too bitter or too sweet.

Ingredients (makes 12 muffins or 24 minis):
  • 60 ml (35 g) dark chocolate chips
  • 160 g flour
  • 3 tbsp cocoa
  • 75 g sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 75 g butter
  • 125 ml milk
  • 3 tbsp brandy
  • powdered sugar for decoration

Melt the butter. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
Crush the chocolate with a knife into small pieces. Mix together flour, baking powder and cocoa then add also sugar and chocolate chips and mix.
In another bowl whisk together milk, melted butter, egg and brandy. Mix wet and dry ingredients together lightly until just combined and pour into muffins cups (fill them about 2/3). If you want, sprinkle the top with more chocolate chips.
Bake in the oven at 200ºC for about 12-15 min. Check if they're ready with a toothpick. Let the muffins cool down before decorating and serving.

These sound real good! If you've never tried it before, might I recommend bourbon in chocolate cakes is also very good. It intensifies the chocolate. I also often add in stale coffee for part of the liquid in a chocolate cake/muffin recipe, and THAT is truly a chocolate intensifying experience to DIE for. :)
