Chocolate chocolate-chip muffins with caramel frosting

A made some muffins for the vacations. They turned out quite nice even though it was my first time making a real frosting. I also experimented with  putting a piece of fudge in the middle of a few of  the muffins but that can’t be recommended – it merely turned into a small lump a the bottom of the muffing and not a nice caramel center as I had hoped.

300g butter
300g sugar
5 eggs
1dl milk
300g flour
100g cocoa powder
2 tbsp baking powder

Melt the butter and mix it well with the sugar. Add the eggs one at a time. Stir in the milk. Add the flour, cocoa and baking powder.

Pour into muffin tins and bake at 180C for about 15-20 minutes.


120g butter
200g brown suger
1.4dl milk

375g confectioners’ sugar (at least…)
0.4dl milk

Melt the butter and stir in the brown sugar. Heat to boiling and reduce the heat. Boil and stir for 2 minutes then add 1.4dl milk. Once again heat to boiling and remove from heat. Let it cool for about 30 minutes.

Pour into a large bowl and mix in the confectioners’ sugar and the 0.4dl milk. Mix it thoroughly (at least 5 minutes). Add more confectioners’ sugar if needed to get the right consistency.

Put the frosting in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes before applying it to the muffins.

To make muffins filled with frosting it is easiest to simply cut a cone out of the top of the muffin, fill with frosting and then reinsert the cone. Cover with frosting on top to hide any evidence of tampering.

Place muffins with frosting in the refrigerator to allow frosting to harden.
