Triple Chocolate Muffins



Can you believe it I had never eaten a chocolate muffin before I made my own last week. It seems funny to think that I would not have had at least one in my life time being the chocolate lover that I am. This past weekend I was in the mood to make muffins and I had a craving for chocolate, so I decided it was going to be one of my baking projects for the weekend.

When I ask my guys in the house what they thought of my idea; I didn't get a very positive feedback. Neither one sounded too thrilled with the idea of chocolate muffins, but as you can see my craving won out. Plus the fact I knew the rest of my kids would be around and they are bigger chocolate lovers than these guys are.

I had some milk chocolate and some white chocolate chips that I wanted to get out of my pantry so I decided to throw them in with the cocoa to make the muffins even better. I had some sour cream in the fridge that needed to be used up so I decided to throw that in too. Maybe these muffins should have been called clean out the cupboard muffins. Well whatever they are called I enjoyed them and I know at least one of the guys in house enjoyed them too. And you know it was not my hubby Mike, since he is not the chocolate lover that I am.



Triple Chocolate Muffins
Ingredients:
2 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup cocoa
1 egg 
3/4 cup milk 
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.
In another bowl slightly beat egg and mix in the milk, sour cream, and cooled melted butter.
Take the wet ingredients and add to the dry, mix until just blended. Add the chocolate chips and gently fold in.
Lightly grease muffin tins or use paper liners. Spoon muffin batter into prepared muffin tins, filling each one 2/3 full. 
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. You can use a toothpick to test the muffins if it comes out clean the muffins are ready to remove from the oven. 
Set on cooling rack and cool completely.

  3. I love when I get to clean out the cupboards and end up with something delicious, that's the fun in baking. I love chocolate muffins but I've never made one. Going to have to correct that.

  4. Wow, yummy...simply yummy...

    Starbucks has double chocolate muffins and I like them a lot. This looks much yummier than them.

    What is the difference between double and triple?

  8. These look so good. One of my best friends is a chocolate lover and whenever we have her and her husband over for dinner I always plan on serving chocolate. These would be so good, warm from the oven with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
    You're a sweetie :)
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  14. Good Afternoon Dawn, Thank you so much for popping over to visit me at Ivy, Phyllis and Me! and for leaving such a nice comment.
    Now, you have my attention, as I love chocolate... in any shape or form, and I love how you named these lovelies, "Clean out my kitchen cupboard muffins". It is great when we can use our store cupboard and not have to visit the shops for the ingredients we need.
    I have never used brown sugar in chocolate muffins, so I am looking forward to trying this recipe.
    I have enjoyed my visit and I have become a new follower..... I'm sure we can still do that, to be honest I thought all the photographs of my followers were going to vanish.
    Have a lovely day.
    Best Wishes
    Daphne
