Cherry Ripe Muffins

Last week I had an idea for cherry ripe muffins, so this weekend I was compelled to make them. I need to have these kind of ideas more often, because the resulting muffins are AMAZING! Rich and chocolatey, with bursts of cherry pieces and coconut, they taste just like their namesake chocolate bars. Even the batter tasted incredible.

1 2/3 cups self raising flour
½ cup caster sugar
1/3 cup desiccated coconut
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup glace cherries, halved
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup coconut milk
90g butter, melted
¼ cup cherry liqueur

Preheat oven to 180C, line or grease a 6-hole texas muffin pan. Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl, stir in chocolate chips and cherries. Stir in remaining ingredients and divide the mixture among the pan holes. Bake for 30 minutes, stand in trays for 5 minutes before turning on to a wire rack to cool.
