The selection of strawberry and mango fruits I received. They do 90g and 35g packs.
I started by creaming together caster sugar and butter.
I added eggs and vanilla extract and whisked in.
Then I folded in cocoa powder and self raising flour. And finally I added of the Urban Fruit dried strawberries, I cut any larger pieces in half, and added half a pack of chocolate chips.
I divided the mixture between 12 muffin cases and baked for 20 minutes.
To decorate I melted dark chocolate and drizzled it over the muffins.
Finally I sprinkled on some freeze dried raspberry sprinkles. I did want to use strawberry sprinkles, but the shop only had the raspberry ones.
The Double Chocolate & Strawberry Muffins were so tasty! I made them right before a group of my boyfriend’s friends came over for the weekend and they were gone within the day. One of the boys ate seven of them!! I managed to grab one before they all went and I didn’t know what to expect as I don’t like fresh strawberries, but I really enjoyed it and the fruit had a lovely sweet flavour.
Check out my blog post on the Mango & Lime Muffins I made with the mango Urban Fruit!
