  7. 7. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, stir in the Cointreau and Camp Coffee. Remove from the heat and let the chocolate mixture cool.
  8. 8. Take the cream out of the refrigerator and stir the chocolate mixture through the cream very lightly. Spoon the cream and chocolate into a piping bag with a big nozzle and pipe onto the muffins.
