Toblerone Muffins

Goodness.  It's been a pretty exciting week hasn't it cookies?  First an earthquake, then a hurricane!?

Newsflash, we're not really well versed in natural disaster preparedness.  Well wait, correction, we weren't really well versed, but now??  NOW, we have this whole thing down pat.

The Blue-Eyed Bakers' Emergency Prep Plan

Step one.  Put away patio furniture.

Step two.  Realize you live in New York City therefore have no patio that would require patio furniture.  Move onto step three (this hurricane prep business is a breeze!).

Step three.  Try to remove window air conditioning unit.  It's heavy.  Clearly too heavy to be uprooted by hurricane force gales.  Abort!  Move onto step four (breezy!).

Step four.  SUPPLIES!  Head to the store (meaning the 24 hour corner deli of course) for essential non-perishable items.  Arrive home with proscuitto, red wine, Diet Dr Pepper and Toblerone bars.  Essentials.

Step five.  Stare at Toblerone.  Remind yourself that you are saving it for the hurricane.

Step six.  Realize you have no flashlights or candles.  Hmm...are those important?

Step seven.  Get a head start on clearing out the freezer.  Start with the ice cream...wouldn't want it to go to waste...

Step eight.  Revalation!  How delicious would this ice cream be on top of a warm brownie?  Or...OR...a warm TOBLERONE MUFFIN.

Step nine.  Yeah, you know where this is going.  Ice cream, warm chocolate Toblerone-y muffins, maybe a wee splash of red wine...we are SO ready for this.

Toblerone Muffins
Makes 18 muffins
Adapted from Katie Quinn Davies

Print Recipe

3 cups flour
3 tablespoon cocoa powder, preferably Dutch processed
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
9 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted & cooled slightly
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cup Toblerone chocolate, roughly chopped (about 2 bars)

Preheat oven to 325 F.  Line a standard muffin pan with paper liners and set aside.

Sift together flour, cocoa powder and baking powder in a large bowl and combine well.  Mix in sugar and set aside.

In another bowl, whisk together eggs, butter and milk.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated.  Fold in 1 cup of Toblerone chunks.

Fill each muffin liner about 3/4 full and bake muffins for about 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.  Halfway through baking time, remove muffins and scatter remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate over muffins.

Allow muffins to cool for 10 minutes in the pan before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.

Ohhh, so yummy! Mental note: hunker down with the Blue Eyeds for the next natural disaster...!

The last time we had a huge snowstorm I headed to the store and bought the ingredients for chocolate chip cookies and a gallon or two of milk. My kids loved me during those few days we were trapped in the house.

Glad you're safe!

Oh my yum! Toblerone has been my favorite chocolate bar for what seems like forever. And I love the little touch of calling them ''muffins" which makes it much more acceptable to eat them for breakfast. :)

Now Toblerone??!! You Blue-Eyed Bakers have captured my heart (and Sweet Tooth) and will not let go!

August 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMercedes

This recipe is going right to the top of my 'must try' list!!! If you're going to be stuck indoors during a natural disaster, you might as well have something fabulous and sinful to keep you "distracted".

Oh how I wish I had these muffins while I was stuck inside all weekend! So much better than eating hershey kisses by the handful.

Hee hee, this is too funny! I was about as prepared as you...I did manage to score one of the last few batteries from the hardware store near me though!

Does it seem unreasonable to fly into a disaster just for these?

August 29, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHannah

Fabulous emergency plan! Won't add anything to your list, you've got it covered with those muffins!

oh my goodness. we LOVE Toblerone!

Yes, please, these look divine. I would totally head to the hurricane for a batch of these muffins. Yum.

August 30, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAimee @ ShugarySweets

These definitely would have made my Mad Men Marathon and Hurricane weathering that much better. Seriously? Toblerones in a muffin. Love it!

do you think swiss meringue buttercream frosting will go right with these muffins? i wanna make them for my husband birthday.

September 7, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterhind

A swiss buttercream would be delicious on these muffins! And really, they're pretty cupcake-y anyway so would lend themselves well to a frosting! Enjoy!
