Grease the cases with Pure.

greasing muffin cases

Spoon the mixture into the cases on a baking tray. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. The muffins will have risen and peaking from their cases.

Remove from the oven and cool.

For the topping, melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.

When slightly thickened, spread each muffin with the icing and decorate if you wish.
