Salted Caramel Whiskey Muffins

Ingredients

Muffins

  • 80g Unsalted butter
  • 100g Milk chocolate
  • 160g Caster sugar
  • 60ml Whiskey (I used Bushmills)
  • 3 Eggs
  • Drop of vanilla essence
  • Pinch of salt
  • 80g Plain flour
  • 40g Cocoa powder

Icing

  • 80g Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate (I used this one from Aldi!)
  • 15g Unsalted butter
  • 40ml Whiskey
  • Vanilla essence
  • Icing Sugar

Method

Brownies

  1. Preheat oven to 180° Celsius
  2. Boil a pan of water and pop the butter and chocolate into a pudding bowl and place on the pan – mix together until melted
  3. When melted pop into a mixing bowl
  4. Gently stir in the sugar
  5. Once mixed together, add in the eggs, whiskey, vanilla and salt. 
  6. In a separate bowl sieve the flour and cocoa together
  7. Fold in flour and cocoa into the rest of the ingredients
  8. Mix together until fully combined and smooth
  9. Pour mixture into muffin tin
  10. Cook for 25 mins (pop knife through and if the knife comes out clear remove from the oven)
  11. Once cooked – set aside to cool

Frosting

  1. Melt the dark chocolate and unsalted butter together
  2. Add in a drop of vanilla essence and the whiskey
  3. Mix together
  4. Slowly sieve in the icing sugar (I did this slowly and stopped once I got a good consistency)

Once the muffins completely cool you can add the frosting

The frosting will look a little lumpy, but thats just the salted caramel!
