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.

  1. Love the yummy pictures. They look absolutely delicious.

  2. Mmm, I love the addition of espresso powder. I’m sticking that stuff in everything lately!

  3. This is the perfect way to have chocolate for breakfast!

  4. 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.

  5. These are perfect! You can have them anytime of the day! Ya! 🙂

  6. eating one right now. absolutely delicious! thanks robyn 🙂

    • 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.

  7. 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!

  8. These are so yummy! I made them to have as a quick breakfast for the week, but they only last a couple of days because we just kept snacking on them!

  9. I just made these they were great , i did 6 small and 6 giant muffins really good shared with neighbor and they raved about them also

  10. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, i just made this now and my family love it. even though i made a mistake in calculating the butter milk but it still turns out yummy. 🙂

    love lots 😀

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. 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.

  14. I would be really excited if these were baking in my oven too!

  15. These came out fantastic! Big, bakery style muffins full of chocolatey goodness! Thanks so much for sharing.

  16. I stumbled across this recipe when my oldest requested chocolate chocolate chip muffins. These are delicious! My yield was 16 regular muffins, and some of them were so big that I could easily have yielded 18. I didn’t have espresso powder, but didn’t miss it. My boys have been asking for them as after-school snacks and dessert. They would eat them for breakfast if I let them. We have one left, but it has already been called for and they are asking If I will have the next batch ready for tonight. Thanks!!

  17. I made them and they came out PERFECT! It made 18 perfect size muffins, everyone enjoyed them!

    Thank you for sharing

  18. These are the bomb and so easy, right on girl, thank you so much will be making these quite often.

  19. I don’t have any buttermilk…is there a substitute I can use instead?

  20. I made these today with a slight twist. Took some oreo cookies & broke them up in pieces & sprinkled them on top of the muffins – divine!! I followed the directions exactly and found that when the wet ingredients were mixed together, the cold buttermilk caused the melted butter to solidify. I’ve been baking for over 40 years and have never seen that happen before.

  21. I had the same thing happen. Thought it was the eggs. Your right it was the butter. 

  22. I just made these and forgot the salt, lmao, they were amazing but added it to the last six!  I used room temperature butter and mixed in the batter just fine, I also read the wrong line and added 3/4 cup butter, I mean I just couldnt get this right, but the muffins are great anyway!
