  1. Cut a tip off the muffin mix' piping bag and pipe into the molds to fill about 1/3 of the molds.
  2. Unmold the baked ganache and place into the center of the muffin mix, gently pressing to reach the bottom of the mold.
  3. Pipe some more muffin mix on top of the ganache.
  4. Spread some crumble on top of the muffins.
  5. Bake at 170°C (338°F)for 15 minutes.
  6. Once baked, let it cool down in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
  7. Once cooled, unmold the muffins. Once at room temperature, the muffins are ready to be served. If not served the same day, the muffins can be refrigerated for up to two days. If refrigerated, we recommend to allow the muffins to return to room temperature before consumption.
