Ingredients

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
  • 65 g Chocolate chips

For decoration

  • 60 g Dark chocolate
  • 20 g Freeze dried strawberries optional

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180C/160C Fan/350F/Gas Mark 4 and line a cupcake tin with paper cases

  2. Cut up the dried strawberries into smaller pieces and toss them in a little flour to coat them (this will help them stop sinking)

  3. Mix together the caster sugar and butter until creamy and smooth

  4. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and whisk in

  5. Whisk in the cocoa powder and self raising flour

  6. Then gently fold in the dried strawberries and chocolate chips using a spatula or spoon

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. Store in an airtight container in a cool place and eat within 3 days
