Chocolatey Easter treat

After seeing these dinky Kit Kat bunnies in the shop, we had to make some Kit Kat Bunny Muffins. They are really cupcakes but I used a muffin tray so they are muffins – what is the difference between a muffin and a cupcake anyway?

(According to Nigella, the main difference is the type and amount of liquid in the batter and the mixing method. Cupcakes are usually made with sugar and butter is mixed together and then eggs are beaten in before adding the flour. Whereas muffins are usually made by mixing dry ingredients like flour and sugar together, separately mixing any liquid ingredients and then mixing the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Now we know!) So scratch the above they are indeed muffins.

This muffin has a secret ingredient, mini chocolate eggs inside the delicious chocolate sponge. You may have to

Tips to make the perfect Kit Kat Bunny Muffins

  • Buy mini Malteser eggs – they will fit into the muffins better
  • Freeze the mini Malteaser eggs before using them.  This will prevent the eggs from melting into the sponge too much.

How to make Kit Kat Bunny Muffins

Start by preheating your oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C.
Then line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases.
Add sifted flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and sugar into a large bowl. Then stir to combine thoroughly.

Add to the bowl, eggs, milk and sunflower oil. You might need some more milk here to think the mixture to more of a batter. Probably a couple of tablespoons.
Divide the mixture between the cases and then push a mini Malteser egg into each muffin.
Bake for around 15-20 mins or until the muffins pass the clean skewer test.
Leave to cool completely.
Using a nozzle of your choice, pipe the icing onto the muffins. Add your Kit Kat bunny and sprinkles, if desired.
