Chocolate hazelnut muffins

Hey guys! For me muffins are a starter cake, meaning before you want to try and make a cake, you can practice with muffins. If you get them perfect, you’re ready to make a cake. There are so many combinations of ingredients and recipes you can try out. Chocolate ones are the most common and the most delicious ones for me, especially if you make them soft and chocolaty filled with chocolate tears that will melt while baking. Like a perfect chocolate dessert with a chocolate surprise in every bite.

So when making chocolate muffins nothing goes better than mixing in some hazelnuts. But that is not the only option, you can put cherry jam, fresh raspberries or cranberries. You can also use M&Ms, that’s something I discovered a few months ago, and it is so delicious!

Use some of you’re free time, play with the recipes, make some muffins, you can even turn them into cupcakes by spreading some icing over them! Most importantly have fun and cook, cook, cook!
