Aren’t these muffins adorable? And they don’t only look good, they taste even better. If you will, this is a two-in-one recipe, because the simple chocolate muffins are also great without whipped cream.
I got the idea, when I woke up last Saturday morning and it had snowed. When I went for a run everything was covered in snow, only a few moles (or one?) was already up and left some mole hills. So I decided to make molehill muffins as a dessert for the pizza party, I was invited that night.
To make the muffins, you’ll first have to bake some chocolate muffins. They are super easy to make and turn out fluffy and delicious.
To turn them into molehill muffins, cut off the tops and fill them with banana slices and whipped cream. The get the perfect amount of whipped cream and to arrange it easily, I used my ice cream scoop.
Then crumble the tops in a bowl, take a hand full in one hand and dip one muffin, whipped cream first into the crumbles. Press on and form a molehill.
I like the taste of Soyatoo cream and the firmness of Schlagfix, so I combined these two. In the end I had some whipped cream left over and mixed it with the left-over crumbles, poured it in two glasses and decorated it with banana and cacao nibs. It was a delicious dessert and nothing was wasted.
Have fun baking and indulging!
