  • 150 g brown sugar, salt
  • 1 package Vanilla sugar
  • 3 Eggs (Gr. M)
  • 200 g Flour
  • 1⁄2 Package Baking Powder
  • 50 g Baking cocoa
  • 100 ml Milk
  • 100 g Whipped cream
  • 1⁄2 Cubes (12.5 g) Coconut oil
  • 24 salted pretzels
  • 100 g Marzipan paste
  • 25 g + 30 g + some icing sugar
  • 12 red chocolate lentils
  • 24 Paper baking cups
  • 1 Disposable piping bag


  1. 1

    Preheat oven (electric cooker: 175 °C/circulating air: 150 °C/gas: see manufacturer). Line the recesses of a muffin tray (12 recesses) with 2 paper baking cups each. Finely chop 100 g chocolate. Cream butter, sugar, 1 pinch of salt and vanilla sugar with the whisks of the mixer.

  2. 2

    Stir in the eggs one by one. Mix flour, baking powder and cocoa. Mix flour and cocoa in 2 portions alternately with the milk. Fold in chopped chocolate.

  3. 3

    Spread the dough evenly in the muffin tray troughs. Bake in a hot oven for about 25 minutes. Take out. Leave to cool in the tin on a cake rack.

  4. 4

    Lift the muffins out of the cups. Coarsely chop 100 g chocolate. Warm the cream in a small pot. Add coconut oil and chocolate and melt in it while stirring. Remove from the heat and let it cool down.

  5. 5

    Spread the muffins with the chocolate icing, except 1⁄2 TL, and let the icing dry. After 30-45 minutes, carefully press the pretzels into the icing. Knead marzipan and 25 g icing sugar. Roll out to a thickness of approx. 4 mm on a work surface dusted with icing sugar.

  6. 6

    Cut out 12 circles (each approx. 1.5 cm Ø).

  7. 7

    Mix 30 g icing sugar and 1 teaspoon water to make a glaze. First glue marzipan noses, then chocolate lentils with a drop of icing sugar icing onto the muffins. Fill the rest of the icing into the disposable piping bag, cut off the tip.

  8. 8

    Spray eyes on the muffins. Use the rest of the chocolate icing to put dots on the eyes.
