Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Muffins

Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Muffins

O.k., so maybe chocolate muffins aren’t the healthiest thing that you could eat for breakfast, but on a special occasion or every once in a while nothing beats a Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Muffin.  So my daughter was leaving on a school trip to New York at 5:00 a.m. last week and I thought what a perfect breakfast to make for her and her friends before they head out on such a wonderful adventure.  I hope you enjoy them as much as they did.

Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Muffins

Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Muffins


  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, plus 1/4 cup for sprinkling
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat together butter, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla until fluffy. Beat in eggs, then stir in milk. Mix in flour, then chocolate chips.
  3. Divide batter equally between the muffin cups, they will be full.
  4. Sprinkle each muffin with a little coarse sugar if desired.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out without crumbs on it – chocolate is ok. Remove from oven, cool on wire racks 10 minutes, remove from pan to wire racks and cool completely.
