Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray muffin cups with non-stick baking spray with flour. In small saucepan, combine chocolate and butter. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Remove from heat; let cool slightly. In medium bowl, combine 1 ¼ cup of flour, sugar and salt. Add chocolate mixture, eggs and vanilla. Beat at low speed with an electric mixer just until blended. In a small bowl, toss together finely chopped Goo Goo Cluster and remaining ½ teaspoon of flour; fold into chocolate mixture. Spoon into prepared muffin cups.
