These chocolate chocolate chip muffins come together quickly and bake into a tender, moist muffin that you’ll swear tastes like dessert.

These muffins are perfect for making for a shower or brunch and mini muffins are just perfectly sized for such an event. And for school parties and teacher appreciation breakfasts, these little babies will become a regular request! I know this time of year, there are tons of events for wedding and baby showers, Mother’s Day brunches, and end of year parties in the planning. But, even if you find yourself not in the middle of the party planning, I think anyone would love to receive a basket full of these goodies. It would certainly brighten anyones day.

Lately around my house though, they’ve been requested as an afternoon snack, especially if Little Buddy has friends over. I’m not sure which of us is more excited when they are coming out of the oven!

I make my chocolate chocolate chip muffins and scoop the batter into a muffin tin that I have sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Once I have all the batter into the muffin tin, I sprinkle an additional bit of chocolate chips on top of the muffin batter as decoration. It just adds a little something something to them after they’ve baked, I think.

    I was doing just fine until I scrolled down to the picture of the melty chocolate chips on top. I suspect this is a really tasty muffin. I see buttermilk is in the batter and I immediately think, oh this has gotta be good. I think it’s a leftover influence from my Mom’s buttermilk pancakes. The world was flat then, so that was one powerful influence.

      My daughter and I made these last weekend. Best muffins I’ve ever made! Used Ghirardelli 60% chips and sprinkled the top with sanding sugar for a crispy first bite.

    What actually is espresso powder? We don’t seem to be able to buy it at our stores.all that is available are instant cappuccino powders.
    Will be trying this recipe over the weekend, sounds glorious chocolaty!

    Directions #2&3 are confusing for a novice. Hope the author of the recipe changes this. Having cooked for many years you just know that’s an error & to mix the wet into the dry.

    Just whipped up this recipe. The batter taste great! It took the full 20 minutes for them to cook. I used a standard size silicone muffin pan and it yielded 21 muffins. They taste SO GOOD! I’m freezing them and I’ll thaw them in a few days to pass out to my students when they take final exams. Hopefully, they’ll love them too!

    I made these as ran out of the chocolate chocolate chip muffin mix from my store, and daughter said they are the best ever. Guess I’ll be making these for her. I did make mine mini and baked them for 14 minutes.
