Chunky Chocolate Orange Muffins

Orange and chocolate heaven! Hope you give them a try. 🙂

You will need:

  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp freshly grated orange zest
  • 1/2 orange/peach juice
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • extra chocolate and butter for the chocolate glaze
  • sprinkles of choice
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F).
  2. In a bowl, combine butter and sugar; cream until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, until incorporated. Add orange zest and orange juice; mix well.
  3. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture; stir gently just until blended. Fold in chocolate.
  4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin, filling three-quarters full. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 22 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. Set aside to cool.
  5. For the chocolate glaze, just melt some chocolate and a little butter in a saucepan, pop the tops of your muffins into the chocolate and decorate with sprinkles. Enjoy!
