Clever Tips, Tricks and Hints …

  • 1 ¼ cups of Chocolate Bits is equivalent to the 230g bag of Cadbury Baking Chips so you’ll have no leftovers to store. These go on sale at the supermarket regularly so, when they do, grab a couple of packets.
  • I used Milk Chocolate Chip Bits, however, the dark and white chocolate varieties work equally as well, it’s just personal taste.
  • I use gluten free flour when I bake so feel free to substitute if you need to cater to a friend or family member who needs a gluten free variety.
  • These will keep for a couple of days in a sealed, air-tight container but will also freeze beautifully.


  1. I love dark chocolate in muffins-it seems to make them even more chocolatey if that makes sense! ?

    • It does make sense … dark chocolate in anything just seems to add a hint of decadence, don’t you think!
