Cream together the butter and sugar until light and beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the chocolate and vanilla extract.  Then alternatively add some milk then some flour and mix until just incorporated and no flour remains.  Pour into muffin cases and bake for 20 - 25 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.
