As a kid, my favourite chocolate bar (well, it was more like a disc than a bar) was called Golden Rough.  They were one of the smaller (and therefore cheaper) chocolates and a great size for curing any chocolate craving.  Plus, anything with coconut in it always goes to the top of the list for me. Apologies if it seems I’ve been on a bit of a coconut rant lately with Coconut Cake and then Jam and Coconut Pinwheels, but it is one of my favourite ingredients. Anyway, these muffins are a tribute to the Golden Rough and feature the all time great combination of coconut and chocolate. Enjoy!

Golden  Rough Muffins


2 cups self raising flour 1/2 cup caster sugar 1 cup desiccated coconutGolden Rough 4 tablespoons cocoa 4 tablespoons melted butter 1 egg, lightly beaten 1 cup milk


Preheat oven to 200C (390F).  Prepare 12 hole muffin tin by either greasing each hole or lining with a muffin case. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Make a well in the centre and add liquid ingredients.  Stir to combine, but don’t over mix.  If the mixture is a bit dry, add a little more milk. Drop spoonfuls of mixture into the prepared  pan.  Bake for 10-15 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

The Klutzy Cook Notes
