Surprise Muffins!

Caramel Surprise Muffins

The cooking part of my lovely Sunday mostly involved this: baking muffins!

Caramel Surprise Muffins

These babies have a jersey caramel in the middle!

I'm lucky enough to have two nieces who are at least some-what interested in cooking. They weren't into the prepping and measuring, but they were more then happy to mix up the ingredients and divvy the mixture up into the muffin tins, and of course hiding the jersey caramel in the middle!

Caramel Surprise Muffins

Chocolate- Caramel Surprise! Muffins

2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
100g dark chocolate, grated (I only had about 50g to grate, so I threw in a handful of dark chocolate chips)
2/3 cup milk (I used vanilla flavoured soy milk)
125g butter, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
6 jersey caramels, halved

To make!

1. Preheat oven to moderate (180 degrees, C). Lightly grease a 12-hole muffin pan.
2. Sift flour into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar and chocolate.
3. In a jug, whisk together butter, milk and egg. Make a little well in the centre of flour mixture and at wet mixture in all at once. Mix lightly until just combined- don't over-mix!!
4. Spoon enough mixture into each recesss of muffin pan to half fill. Place half a jersey caramel in the centre of each one. Cover evenly with remaining muffin mixture so the caramels are now in the centre of the muffins!
5. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

These are definitely worth enjoying while they are still warm so the surprise inside is still melty and gooey; but don't eat them right away, especially if you are enjoying them with children as that caramel inside can get quite molten right out of the oven.
