What is better than a bar of your favourite chocolate? An oozy, gooey, soft centred muffin stuffed with your favourite chocolate!
If your favourite chocolate happens to be Rolo then you are in luck below.
This all came about because I wanted to make these muffins, after arriving at the confectionary isle I found they didn’t sell Rolos but low and behold, they did sell bars of chocolate shaped like dozens of Rolos stuck together. Whatever, they would work and they were on special. You know what that means? Double batch!!!
(Rolos, if you are not familiar with them, are little chocolate cups filled with gooey caramel made by Nestle. Normally sold in a long roll of them stacked end to end, they now sell them as a chocolate bar also. So yummy!)
At first I thought this muffin was a little plain, maybe not quite sweet enough and then I hit the center. The oozy, gooey chocolate in the center gives you a chocolate caramel hit that makes you grateful for the less flamboyant surrounding muffin. It is a terrific combination of pleasant cakey muffin and super sweet, gooey caramel chocolate that just works so well. They are really good straight out of the oven, just let the center cool down to less than nucleonic heat before you get stuck in, else you could get a nasty shock as you bite into molten caramel. Been there, done that….
