Chocolate Muffins with Mars Bar Pieces

Makes 12 good sized muffins

250g self raising flour
25g cocoa powder (Green & Black's is a good quality cocoa for all chocolate baking!)
1 teaspoon baking powder
175g golden caster sugar
175 ml milk
2 medium eggs (beaten)
100ml sunflower oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (not essence)
2 Mars bars cut into small pieces (you can also add a square of any other chocolate you have or prefer)

1.  Heat oven to 170 c (375 F or Gas 5)
2.  Line a 12 hole muffin tin with muffin paper cases
3.  Sift together the flour, cocoa, and baking powder
4.  Stir in sugar, then add remaining ingredients and lightly mix together (by hand)
5.  Spoon mixture into prepared paper cases, and then push a few pieces of Mars Bar deep into each case (the Mars Bar does tend to bubble to surface and overflow slightly, so pushing it well down into case should limit the amount of overflow!)
6.  Bake for approx 20 mins (don't be tempted to open over door before 20 mins)
7.  When they have risen, spring back to the light touch, remove and allow to cool for 10 mins before removing from tin
8. These are great as muffins, but also served with custard or ice-cream as a dessert. If using as a dessert you can reheat in microwave for about 15-17 seconds
9.  These will keep for 4-5 days in an airtight container. Enjoy!
