These muffins are so easy to make.......Well I cheated just a little!
I also did not make the chocolate centre, instead I used a Lindt Chocolate Balls in the middle of each muffin, which I still had from Easter.
I did make one mistake and misread the amount of cocoa and used 1/2 cup so this made the muffin mix a little thicker than it was supposed to be, and also made for a very strong cocoa flavour.
No problems I covered the strong cocoa flavour with whipped cream!!!!!!!!!!!
The Lindt Ball's worked a treat in the middle of these muffins and served warm with the cream made for a delicious muffins with a soft, rich chocolate middle.
Thanks Pat, will be making these again, so easy and so delcious, although next time I might follow the recipe!!!! :-)

Delcious muffins that we will prepare again.
We used very dark chocolate and conventional heavy cream (1 cup) that we boiled until it was reduced.
I will try the recipe with different chocolate filling and as tisme suggested I will try to cheat as well.
Thanks a lot for you recipe!

Pat - I did not do the molten bit but I did drop squares of choc into each muffin but the muffin mixture is marvellous - so so quick and easy to do - my results were great. Thanks for a jumping off point.
