Gooey Surprise Deep Double Chocolate Muffins – Contest Finalist 2

3 WWPP Posted by 10 years ago 5 Comments

I’ve been waiting to make this finalist. Such a simple idea and who doesn’t like GOOEY CHOCOLATE?!?

Well after dinner the toddler and I hit the kitchen. We had a blast making them (he was able to help a lot) and the results were tasty! The addition of just 3 little chips and marshmallows really did make this delisciously gooey center! Gooey Surprise Deep Double Chocolate Muffins – VitaMix Contest Finalist 2

Note from Roni: I had a few marshmallows peak out the top. Next time I make them, I think I’ll fill the cups a little less. It didn’t matter through they were still DELISH!

Heat oven to 400 degrees

Place 12 paper cupcake liners inside regular size muffin tin. Spray each paper liner with non-stick cooking spray.

Prepare muffin mix according to package instructions.

Fill each muffin cup 1/3 full of batter. Place 3 miniature marshmallows and 3 chocolate chips in center of each muffin cup. Fill muffin cup with additional batter so the cups are 2/3 full of batter. Use a spoon to seal and cover the fillings inside the muffins.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Hey Roni et al, Can you compare for me the ease of extraction between Vitamixes and No Pudge? (If you are familiar with No Pudge.) I've been using No Pudge, because Vitalicious was previously unavailable in my area (until this past week when I spotted them at Shaw's), and I'm mail-order phobic. With No Pudge, even with muffing tin liners and non-stick spray, actually getting to the yummy goodness was challenging. I'm asking because in the pics featuring the Toddler, it doesn't look like you actually used liners, though you mentioned liners in the instructions. So, how easy was extraction without liners? I'm hoping that the small amount of fat in Vitalicious mixes, compared to absolutely none in No Pudge, makes the job a bit easier. If that's true, then I've got some antique baking pans in interesting shapes that I'm eager to try using Vitalicious mixes. Thanks, Joy

    Joy - I have never had No Pudge, do you believe it!?!? LOL You were right, I didn't have liners so I skipped them. I routinely use VitaMixes with just non-stick cooking spray and never had a problem with them sticking.

    I just broke down and ordered some muffin mix online. Apparently canadians don't get access to such great mixes:) Can't wait to get them in the mail and bake up a storm!
