Double Chocolate Muffin

Let's start our new years with something sweet, shall we?
Double Chocolate Muffin *adapted from the recipe book "Chocolate Box"-

Ingredients (for six)?

3/4 cup of all purpose flour
1/6 cup or 2 oz of unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 tablespoon of baking powder
3 tablespoon of melted butter
5 oz white chocolate (regular store package size, break into chunks)
1 egg

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheits.

In a big bowl,
Sift the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder,
This step can ensure the smooth texture of our muffins.
Add the sugar and 3 oz of white chocolate chunks into the mixture and give it a stir.

In a separate big bowl,
Beat the butter and egg for couple minutes,
While stirring, gradually pour in the milk.
Now let's pour the dry mixture into the wet mixture and stir till fully combined.

Line the muffin pan with muffin cups,
Pour in the mixture till about 3/4 full.
Don't get too greedy here,
Before I always thought that 3/4 looks so little, I don't wanna have tiny muffins!
Then I ended up with these gigantic muffin monsters....
Lesson learned,
3/4 is good enough.

Into the oven for about 20 minutes,
Transfer them to the rack and let it cool there.

What about the remaining white chocolate chunks?
Melt them in a double broiler,
Spray the sauce on top of each muffins.

Dust with cocoa powder if desired.

Because we used unsweetened cocoa powder instead of melted chocolate,
These muffins have the perfect balance of sweetness that you won't get sugar-sick afterwards.

We also used white chocolate chunks for the muffin,
So what's gonna happen when you first biting into these yummy treats?
Melted white chocolate pouring into your mouth,
Mmmmmm what are you waiting for,
Go bake!
