Have to share this recipe with you all:
Ozgal's Choc POH Muffins (I took a few suggestions I'd read on board and incorporated them into my variation below, i.e. the egg whites - and choc squares - great ideas).
1 metric (250ml) cup of muffin mix
14g Cadbury bourneville cocoa (I weigh mine, but it's approx 2 tbs)
Cadbury lite chocolate (6 squares)
2tbs Cottee's diet chocolate topping
2 whole eggs (60g size)
Plus extra 2 egg whites (stiffly beaten)
3 tsp baking powder
50ml of Bulla Lite cream
Splenda - 24 tablets crushed (I use a large meal mallet to crush mine)
Beat egg whites until stiff in small bowl. Set aside.
Crush Splenda tabs and mix with dry ingredients in a large bowl (except the Cadbury Lite choc squares).
Mix all other wet ingredients.
Mix wet into dry ingredients. Gently fold beaten egg whites into the mix.
Spoon into muffin or friand tray (I use friand tray as the shape looks more exotic to me than regular muffins). Push 1 choc square into each muffin....make it disappear otherwise it looks a bit cheapo sitting on top with Cadbury's written on it (mine did not lose shape...so next time I will be pushing mine into mix until I cannot see the choc anymore).
Cook on 160oC for 25 minutes. Leave in tray to cool. Use a dessertspoon to gently lift out of tray onto wire rack until completely cold.
There are lovely and moist, rise well and stay tall and are very yummy.
Hope you enjoy them.

I could also see these being a great dessert idea, warmed in microwave, topped with fresh raspberries and drizzled with choc sauce (maybe made with cream, Cadbury lite choc and Splenda??)...Will have to give this a try!
I have never made a choc sauce so if anyone has a recipe that would be great!
