Decoration Tips:

For an extra touch of elegance, you can dust the tops of these muffins with powdered sugar once they’ve cooled. A drizzle of melted chocolate or a dollop of whipped cream can also elevate them into a dessert-worthy presentation. To make them even more special, garnish with fresh berries or mint leaves right before serving.

What You’ll Need for 12 Muffins:

  • Muffin cups
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • A little less than 1/2 cup vegetable oil (sunflower recommended)
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt (preferably whole milk)


  • 12 chocolate candies (dark chocolate candies with a nougat-fruit filling work well, but leftover chocolate Easter eggs are also great)


  1. Preheat your oven to 356°F (180°C) and prepare your muffin tin with the cups.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and sugar.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the eggs and then blend in the oil and yogurt until smooth.
  4. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, stirring just until mixed.
  5. Fill each muffin cup halfway with the batter. Place a chocolate candy in the center of each, pressing down slightly.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the muffins are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (except for the chocolate center).
  7. Let them cool slightly in the pan before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


For a perfectly centered chocolate heart, don’t hesitate to press the chocolate candy a bit deeper into the batter than you might initially think necessary.
