Christmas is coming ! Quick and Easy Chocolate Muffins

These chocolate muffins are so quick and easy to make and they are so soft and delicious that I think most people will not be able to resist a second one.

During Christmas week or a weekend in December they are ideal a any tie of the day and a good start to the weekend as a late breakfast too with a cup of coffee. Thick, dark and silky chocolate gives you an instant lift and you can also omit the icing and sprinkle oats, museli or your favourite seeds on top before baking.
