It seems like this year, as soon as the Christmas decorations were down, the Easter Eggs were out. We've been restrained, but we can hold our Easter cheer in no longer - this is the season for chocolate lovers after all! And so it is with great excitement (absolutely nothing to do with the huge sugar high after eating these treats) that we present our Easter Nest Muffins! They are completely vegan friendly (make sure you buy eggs to correspond!) and pretty much chocolate heaven in a muffin case. But don't take our word for it! One of our well respected Goupie tasters had this to say - 'grownups probably would think there is too much chocolate...an amazing and tasty combination. Love it in my opinion with nothing to complain about!' - which we think speaks for itself, happy (almost) Easter Goupie Groupies!
What You Do
Mix the chocolate and sunflower oil together. Add the rest of the wet ingredients and sugar and mix thoroughly.
Sieve the rest of the dry ingredients into the mixture and combine.
Distribute the mix into 12 muffin cases evenly. Bake on 180 oC for 15-20 minutes.
Leave the muffins to cool.
Add a layer of icing on top of the muffins.
Create twigs out of the Goupie my chopping it into thin strips. Use these to form the nest around the outside.
Add eggs to your nests and enjoy!
We hope you enjoy making these as much as we did! Please share your pictures and creations, we're sure you're much more imaginative than us!
Goupie Tip: Try cutting the Goupie into thirds width wise and then into strips to get the most workable twigs!
