These crowd-pleasing Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins are the perfect way to brighten up someone’s morning, or get yours off to a happy start!
A few months ago I hosted a bridal shower at my house. It was in the morning, so I served a bunch of breakfast foods including egg cups, toffee scones, and orange cranberry scones. These chocolate chocolate chip muffins were a huge hit, and it’s a good thing I made a double batch! I had several recipe requests, and promised everyone I would be posting the recipe soon. Then I promptly forgot. (Hanging head in shame.)
It is no surprise that these muffins were a so popular. Who doesn’t love chocolate? They are tender and moist, and packed with chocolate flavor. They rise up nice and high, and the chocolate chips on top make them look so scrumptious. Which they are.
It actually took me three tries to perfect this recipe. I can now say these are the best chocolate chocolate chip muffins I have ever tasted. They aren’t so sweet and fat laden that I feel like I’m eating a cupcake. They have just the perfect amount of decadence without being too rich. And when they are warm and the chocolate chips are all melty? Oh mama. So good.
Give these muffins a try. You won’t be sorry!
