Chocolate Strawberry Love Muffins

Recipe By: Justine Snacks


Just in time for Valentine’s Day (or any sweet holiday for that matter), these chocolate covered strawberry muffins are here!

And while these muffins themselves might not be chocolate covered, they feel exactly like biting into a chocolate covered strawberry – except a little warmer, a little gooier, and definitely more moist. You’ll be shocked at how well the strawberry flavor comes through on these.

6 jumbo muffins or 12 standard muffins

280 grams
All purpose flour
2 cups
2 tsp
Baking powder
1 tsp
Kosher salt
1 tsp
113 grams
Melted butter, salted
1/2 cup
220 grams
1 cup
85 grams
Icelandic Provisions Plain Skyr
1/3 cup
1 tsp
Vanilla extract
1/3 cup
Milk of choice
35 grams
Freeze dried strawberries
1 cup chopped
70 grams
Chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup
For Strawberry filling:
42 grams
3 tablespoons
15 grams
Freeze dried strawberries
1/4 cup
For crumble topping:
30 grams
Brown sugar
3 tablespoons
52 grams
All purpose flour
6 tablespoons
42 grams
Butter, chilled
3 tablespoons
Step 1:
Preheat the oven to 375°F.In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
Step 2:
In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, butter, sugar, skyr and vanilla until very smooth.
Step 3:
In batches, add the dry ingredients to the wet, alternating with splashes of the milk. Mix until a smooth batter forms. Add in the chopped freeze-dried strawberries and the chopped chocolate. Swirl to combine.
Step 4:
Add the remaining freeze-dried strawberries and sugar to a small blender or food processor. Pulse until you get a fine pink "sand."
Step 5:
To make the crumble topping, add the brown sugar, flour and chilled butter to a bowl and toss with your hands. Get the butter fully coated in the flour and start to break it into pieces, gradually mixing it into the flour and sugar. Continuously toss to keep the butter coated, and you'll see a crumble-like mix start to form. Store that in the fridge until you need it.
Step 6:
Scoop the muffin batter about 1/3 of the way up in your jumbo muffin tin (if using a regular tin, see notes). Add a generous sprinkling of the pink strawberry sugar to the middle, then top off the muffin with more batter. You should have a tablespoon or so of strawberry sugar left over, reserve that for later.
Step 7:
Sprinkle the crumble topping generously on top of each muffin. Bake at 375°F for 30-35 minutes.
Step 8:
When the muffins are out of the oven, let them cool for a few minutes and dust the tops with the remaining strawberry sugar. Serve whenever!
