Cereal swirl mini muffins

Updated: Apr 13, 2021

Last weekend I went to a Comehome event at a friends house, the theme was "One Thousand and One Nights" so I came up with these Cereal swirl mini muffins that kinda remind me of a colourful galaxy on a chocolate sky ๐Ÿ˜

What do you guys think? Can you see it too?

Well you need a bit of imagination of course but anyway, they were a hit! And they are super easy to make so check out the recipe below and make it too!!


  • 60ml vegetable oil

  • 100g granulated sugar

  • 60ml milk

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 75g sour cream*

  • 120g all-purpose flour

  • 25g cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

--- TOPPINGS ---


  1. Preheat oven to 350ยฐF (180ยฐC) and prepare your mini muffin tin (I have a silicone mould with 24 cups).

  2. In a bowl mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt and leave it aside.

  3. In a bigger bowl pour oil, sugar and milk and mix with either an electric mixer or an hand whisk until the sugar is completely dissolved.

  4. Add the egg, sour cream and vanilla extract and keep mixing until you get a creamy consistency.

  5. Finally add the dry ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula until just combined.

  6. Pour the batter into the mini muffin pan with a teaspoon filling up the cups to 3/4.

  7. Bake for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few crumbs (a bit fudgy but not too dry).

  8. Let them cool in the pan for about 10 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.

  9. Melt dark chocolate on a double boiler or in the microwave.

  10. Glaze the top of the muffins with chocolate and garnish with Rice Krispies swirl or Fruity Pebbles swirl (act quickly since the chocolate will harden while decorating!)

  11. Enjoy :)


  • You can use greek yogurt instead of sour cream but the result will be slightly different since the sour cream is higher in fat.

  • I used Rice Krispies and Fruity Pebbles but of course you can use any kind of cereal you want, be creative! ๐Ÿ˜Š


If you make it let me know! :)
