Preparation steps

1.

Finely chop the dried plums and soak in the apple juice. Separate the eggs. Beat the egg yolks with the butter, half of the sugar, salt and vanilla sugar until light and creamy. Melt the milk chocolate in a double boiler or heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and stir into the egg yolk mixture. Gradually whisk in the milk, then stir in the soaked dried plums. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into the batter alternately with the flour and cream of tartar. Mix until smooth. 

2.

Line the muffin tin with paper baking cups and fill the cups about halfway with the batter. Bake in an oven preheated to 180°C (approximately 350°F) for about 20-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack. 

3.

Prepare the dark chocolate frosting according to the package instructions and spread onto the cooled muffins. Place a candy heart on top of each muffin and serve.
