Chocolate Muffins are literally superb taste with a fill of chocolaty flavor and are made with fudge, flour, eggs, butter, and milk along with chocolate chips
These tender chocolate muffins with a double hit of chocolate make a delicious breakfast or after-school snack. This a super easy and quick recipe that you can add to your menu for serving coming guests as well as a great snack that makes your taste buds full of flavor taste it goes well with a hot cup of coffee/tea
These are TRIPLE chocolate muffins. Where fudgy brownies and moist chocolate cake meet coffee’s favorite friend. With soft tops, melty chips, and moist centers, these not-so-innocent muffins transport you immediately to dessert. Don’t they always say dessert is the most important meal of the day?
First For a truly unique chocolate muffin experience unlike any other, let’s start with real chocolate. That’s how I begin my favorite, melt butter with some milk and then let it cool down at room temperature Besides, I added some brewed coffee to the fudge and left it aside till required again
And then whisk eggs with sugar until creamy and mix the butter mixture with the fudge mixture
And for the dry ingredients let’s not waste the opportunity to use cocoa powder. This deepens the chocolate flavor. Use natural unsweetened cocoa powder. We’ll whisk the cocoa with flour, leavener, and salt. Easy stuff.
For the final and third addition of chocolate, let’s get a little generous with chocolate chips. I REALLY love dark chocolate chips in these muffins, though regular semi-sweet are fantastic as well. Mini chocolate chips ensure there’s extra chocolate in each bite, but I went with the regular size since that’s all I had at the time. Use any chips you prefer because this chocolate muffin batter can handle it.
These muffins don’t rise quite as high as my typical muffins and that’s because the melted chocolate weighs the batter down. Certainly, not a problem, and you’ll definitely still have a little height. But what’s even better are the beautiful cracks and crevices on top, making these triple chocolate muffins perfect for breaking open and dunking in your cuppa joe.
I love that the tops are slightly moist, too. And those melt chips inside. I mean it’s not a chocolate muffin unless there are MELTY CHIPS INSIDE! Personally, I love to eat these moist, chocolaty, and delicious cupcakes with hot tea as the evening snack or morning breakfast
For the best result follow my detailed step-by-step photo instructions and tips
- Make-Ahead Instructions: For longer storage, freeze muffins for up to 3 months. Allow to thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then bring to room temperature or warm up in the microwave, if desired.
- Chocolate: For the 4 ounces of chocolate, make sure to use high-quality chocolate, not chocolate chips. (You will use chocolate chips as the last ingredient.) I suggest high-quality chocolate baking bars sold on the baking aisle
- Cocoa Powder: Use natural cocoa powder, not Dutch-process cocoa powder. you also can read about natural vs. Dutch by clicking this link
- Coffee: Use instant coffee for the good brand, Coffee gives a deeply chocolaty flavor to your cakes or muffins
- Mini Chocolate Muffins: Fill muffin cups only about halfway. A couple teaspoons of batter per cup is plenty. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350°F or 180 C for or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Yields about 12 mini muffins.
