Craving the taste of chocolate? Then make these flavor-packed muffins. Rich with chocolate goodness, these not-too-sweet muffins combine cocoa powder and semisweet chocolate deliciously.
In addition to including the miniature chocolate chips in the batter, it’s easy to create bakery-style muffins by topping them with a sprinkling of these yummy morsels before baking.
DOUBLE CHOCOLATE MUFFINS
1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup regular or light sour cream
1/4 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips, divided
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 15 muffin cups or line with paper liners. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, combine eggs, sour cream, milk, sugar, brown sugar, butter, and vanilla. Whisk until well blended. Add flour mixture; stir just until moistened. Stir in 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Divide batter among muffin cups. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Bake until a toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean, 17 to 21 minutes. Cool in pans 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Makes 15 muffins.
