Here he shares recipes, answers cooking questions and helps with cooking.

My now following Chocolate Muffins Recipe is something for little and big mouths.

The chocolate muffins are filled with chocolate pieces and taste delicious. 

Freshly baked and served with whipped cream the chocolate fans will cheer.

You can control the chocolate taste with more or less cocoa and pieces of chocolate.

Use dark or milk chocolate to taste. The higher the quality of the chocolate, the better the muffin.

For the preparation I recommend the use of a muffin tin and muffin paper moulds.

This way the muffins can be easily loosened and get the desired shape.

I wish you all the best and would be happy if you share the article on Facebook.

Remove the chocolate muffins from the mould, leave to cool on a plate or tray and arrange as desired.

Combine the muffins with blueberries, raspberries and strawberries.

In winter you can serve an orange salad with the small cakes.
