Who would like some more delicious chocolate recipes? We present you the five yummiest food recipes you can make with different chocolates!
High in calories, saturated fat, and sugar — chocolate has had a bad reputation for a long time. Of course, it is not healthy to overdo anything, but what about the antioxidants from cocoa, the main ingredient in chocolate?
Whether you like white chocolate, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate, it’s time to try some of the famous (and some lesser-known) chocolate recipes.
Here are all the wet ingredients you need for the best chocolate muffins: 1 3/4 cups plain flour (all-purpose flour), 1 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, 1 tbsp instant coffee granules, 1 cup brown sugar, and 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips (optional).
The liquid ingredients you need are 3/4 cup milk, 1/2 cup canola oil, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 3/4 cup sour cream, and one large egg. The tools you need are an oven, 12-hole standard muffin tin, paper cases, two bowls, and a whisk.
Instructions aren’t hard to follow. First, make sure to preheat the oven to 210°C and line a muffin tin with paper cases. In a large bowl, sift flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate bowl, sift the cocoa. Add coffee and hot milk to the sifted cocoa and whisk it all together. Add sugar, oil, egg, sour cream, and vanilla to the cocoa mixture, and whisk until smooth.
Pour the wet mixture into the bowl holding the flour, and whisk. If you have decided on chocolate chips, add them now and mix well. Reserve some chocolate chips for the topping.
Fill the muffin tin with batter, top with chocolate chips, and bake at high temperature for five minutes. Turn the oven down to 190°C and bake for another 15–20 minutes. Enjoy!
