Step by step…
I started by mixing together caster sugar and butter. Then I added eggs and vanilla extract and whisked in.
Then I whisked in cocoa powder and self raising flour. And finally I folded in dried strawberries and 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 strawberry.
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.

Double Chocolate & Strawberry Muffins
Yummy chocolate muffins with choc chips and dried strawberry
For the muffins
- 175 g Butter or baking spread
- 175 g Caster sugar
- 3 Eggs large
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 45 g Cocoa powder
- 130 g Self raising flour
- 90 g Dried strawberries

Pre-heat your oven to 180C/160C Fan/350F/Gas Mark 4 and line a cupcake tin with paper cases
Cut up the dried strawberries into smaller pieces and toss them in a little flour to coat them (this will help them stop sinking)
Mix together the caster sugar and butter until creamy and smooth
Add the eggs and vanilla extract and whisk in
Whisk in the cocoa powder and self raising flour
Then gently fold in the dried strawberries and chocolate chips using a spatula or spoon
Divide the mixture between the muffin cases and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Put them on a cooling rack to cool completely
To decorate melt the dark chocolate and drizzle it over the muffins either using a fork or put it in a piping bag. Finally sprinkle on the freeze dried strawberry
Store in an airtight container in a cool place and eat within 3 days
NB. I was sent the dried strawberry as a gift, all opinions are my own.
