Here’s a picture of the finished muffins sprinkled with a tad of powdered sugar. Delicious! :)
First off, this recipe is SUPER simple, the only difficult part is not eating all of them in a day. I make them with dark chocolate and milk chocolate chips so that you get multiple layers of chocolate goodness. The ratio of
dry goods to wet goods provides for a very dense muffin, and baking them off in a 400 degree oven lends the top a nice crunch for added texture.
Now, I know you’re dying to make these so here’s the recipe:
Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees
2 cups of AP flour
1 1/4 cups baking cocoa
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 stick plus 2 tablespoons of butter, melted
1 1/4 cups of milk
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
3/4 cups milk chocolate chips
Mix together all the dry ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl, combine thoroughly. Add the wet ingredients and mix until well combined. Sprinkle in the chocolate chips and stir until mixed in.
Dish 1/2 cup of the muffin dough into lined muffin tins and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool until the muffins are just slightly warm to the touch and enjoy with a tall glass of milk.
Here are some pictures of the muffin making process
Oops! Almost forgot the sugar, great photo op for my sister. :)
This egg is not spoiled. ;) My mom enjoys keeping chickens on our acreage, and last year I got a couple of my own.
They’re called Easter eggers or Americana’s and they’re bred to lay green eggs. Sometimes they’ll even lay blue or pink, though I have yet to see mine do that. :)
This is the dough before the chocolate chips. Mmm so fudgy and rich.
Dishing the dough.
And the final muffin.
Hope you enjoy them.
