Rocky Road Chcolate Muffins

Before I baked this muffin, I had no idea what rocky road is about and why it's called Rocky Road Chocolate Muffins. The name sounded funny but after researching, I come to realize it's a type of popular dessert made up of milk chocolate and marshmallow.

I never like marshmallow by its own as it's just sweetness. Kids seems to like it a lot, probably it's because of the sweet, soft and chewy texture especially they like to roast it over a campfire or BBQ it. The caramelized outer with a molten layer underneath will make the kids delighted.

This recipe comes from a cookbook named "the muffin collection". Due to the fact that the bookcover features this muffin and it looks so appettizing, it lead me to give this a try.
How's the muffin turned out? Some portions of the marshmallow had melted after bake, the caramel seeped into it and blended well with white chocolate chips. If you have a sweet tooth, I believe you will savour it and wanting more.
Here's the recipe for the Rocky Road Chocolate Muffins I made. I rate this recipe a 7.

Ingredients
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 55g cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 115g caster sugar
  • 100g white chocolate chips
  • 40g white marshmallows cut in quarter
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 250 ml milk
  • 6 tbsp sunflower oil
  • Preparation
    • Preheat the over to 200*C. Line 12 paper cup cases on muffin tin.
    Method:
    1. Sift the flour, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt together into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar, chocolate chips and marshmallows.
    2. Lightly beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl, beat in the milk and oil. Stir well. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the beaten liquid . Stir gently until just combined (about 5 stroke); do not over mix.
    3. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cup cases. Bake at 200*C for about 20 mins or until firm to touch.
    4. Leave the muffins in the tin for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool.
