photo by marisk
- Ready In:
24 mini muffins
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 5 ounces ghirardelli milk chocolate, chopped
- 3 tablespoons cake flour
- 1⁄3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup unsweetened ghirardelli cocoa powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 3 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- confectioners' sugar, to garnish
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Insert a mini muffin cup liner in each muffin cup; set aside. [If not using the liners, coat the mini muffin cups well with butter and dust with flour; make sure you coat them well -- this dough tends to stick or use Kittencal's Pan Release #78579.].
- Melt 8 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan. Add 1/5 of the milk chocolate and whisk until melted. Let cool slightly.
- In a small bowl, whisk both flours, cocoa powder and salt.
- In a large bowl, using a handheld mixer, beat the eggs and sugar at medium speed until pale and thick (3-5 minutes). Beat in the vanilla.
- Beat in the melted chocolate mixture and 1/3 the dry ingredients -- add one third of the flour at a time until it's all incorporated. Then add the remaining chocolate.
- Spoon batter into muffin cups (about 2/3s - 3/4s full) and bake for about 18-20 minutes -- They will have risen and have a springy feel. A toothpick should come out clean and dry when done. Cool in muffin pan for 15 minutes before turning them out onto wire rack for another 15 minutes.
- When plating, sprinkle confectioner's sugar on plate, place cookies on plate and top with a generous amount of the sugar on each.

<p>Aloha! I just recently started spending more time in the kitchen and am learning that cooking and baking can be fun as well as challenging. My favorite cookbook resources are my 'gourmet' sister and the very patient and generous Ohana of Zaar. Mahalo nui loa! <br /><br />My rating system: The first time I try a recipe, I follow the instructions as given; if I do a little tweaking, I keep that in mind when rating. It's not right to rate lower because of something I did or didn't do. <br />***** ... Excellent! Tasted great with/without tweaking. <br />**** ... Loved It! Tasted great with/without tweaking. <br />No stars ... May be an excellent recipe but I was unable to get it to work for me. May or may not try again later. We don't all have the same taste preferences. I've found recipes with lots of five stars that just didn't work for me and some with less that I thought were great. <br />Thank you All for sharing!</p>
