  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C. Lightly grease 2 baking trays.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream the margarine with the white and brown sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, vanilla essence and instant coffee.
  3. Stir in the strawberry jam, chestnut puree, hot chocolate mix, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, orange liqueur and maple essence until evenly blended.
  4. Gradually stir in the flour, muesli, baking powder, bicarb soda and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips, walnuts and grated chocolate until well blended.
  5. Pinch off tablespoon-sized amounts of dough and roll between hands to make 3cm diameter balls. Place balls on prepared baking trays and flatten with a floured glass to be 5mm high.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until tops are set when lightly touched, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool 10 minutes on baking trays before moving to a rack to cool completely.
