As winter is fast approaching here in Australia, I cannot help but feel nostalgia for the long lost summer afternoons... When I think of summer as a child, one of the best memories I have is of mum cooking up a lovely batch of coconut jam drops for an afternoon treat. I have decided to modify this recipe into muffins instead of drops for a heartier winter bite, and added chocolate because it's Easter and who is going to pass up an opportunity for chocolate??!!
