On Friday morning my workmate asked if I could help her out by eating some of her Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chunk Texas muffin. Being the lovely girl that I am, I agreed and boy was it amaze!

I practically inhaled my portion and it stayed on my mind for the rest of the day. And the day after that. So I decided to make some myself! Except I don’t have a muffin pan. Never fear, donuts are here!!

This recipe actually made too much batter for my pan to handle, so I used the rest in my paddy pan, which I ended up taking to work in order to avoid the baked-good coma that would have ensued otherwise. They went down a treat with my co-workers and now I fear this may become a thing.

These taste best straight from the oven, but the combination of peanuts and chocolate is heaven at any time, so they’ll always be a winner in my books.

1 cup milk
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Pour into the flour mixture and stir until just combined, then fold in the chocolate chips.

Pour batter into a piping bag (or using a small sandwich bag with the corner cut works just fine) and pipe into your pan, filling to half-way.

Bake for 15-20 minutes (depending on your oven) until the tops are browned and the batter is cooked.

Remove from the oven, rest for 5 minutes, then turn onto a wire rack to cool.

You simply cannot resist this temptation
Best served warm with a glass of Baileys and milk
