Chocolate chili bites! Picture by clotilde
Chocolate Chili Muffins- 200g butter
- 250g good-quality dark chocolate
- 250g caster sugar (around one cup)
- 5 eggs
- a rounded Tbsp of flour
- 1 tsp ground chili
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
Pre-heat your oven to 200°C (400°F).
Melt the butter with the chocolate in a small saucepan or in a bowl in the microwave. If melting in the microwave, be sure to do it slowly, blending with a spoon between each pass.
Transfer into a mixing bowl, add in the sugar, mix with a wooden spoon and let cool a little. Add the eggs one by one, mixing well with the spoon after each addition. Add a rounded tablespoon of flour and the chili powder and mix well.
Pour the dough in the petit four molds, and put into the oven to bake for 15 minutes. The top should look set, but the inside should still be on the soft side.
Let the the mini muffins cool down enough to unmold them, then turn them out on a rack to cool completely while you cook the other batches. Store in a plastic container, refrigerate, and take out about an hour prior to serving the next day.
My lovelies just fresh from the oven waiting to cool
I'm seriously feeling high from cleaning my spoons and bowls - licking the chocolate batter off.
