Two times the chocolate makes these Chocolate Mocha Muffins the perfect breakfast choice to get you going in the morning. Grab a cup of coffee and a muffin before heading out the door.
A few weeks ago my daughter and I went out on a shopping date. We try to go out every couple weeks just the two of us. The plan is that she can stop at any store she wants, and we usually get a Salted Caramel Mocha Latte for our shopping energy.
On these dates, I am not allowed to go into the stores that I normally would go into. Although, as she has gotten older, she usually likes the same stores I do.
When she was little, she would head right for Justice, but now we head to Target, Ulta, and the mall.
We had a blast going through the clearance racks, found a few tops, and some fun nail polish colors without breaking the bank.
After a couple hours of wandering and laughing, we headed home. Our van was outside of Kohl’s, so we were cutting through the store to get there when I kind of wandered off the path toward some clearance racks.
Those clothes were telling me to come see them! It was clearance after all!!!!
How to make Chocolate Mocha Muffins:
Preheat the oven and line your muffin tin with cupcake liners. You can skip this step, but make sure you spray your pan with nonstick spray if you go this route.
Beat the butter and sugars until fluffy. Then add the egg, vanilla, and sour cream and beat it again.
Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk and coffee. Do not over mix the batter. As soon as it is all mixed together, stop beating the batter. This will keep the batter light and fluffy and your finished muffins soft and tender.
Stir some of the chocolate chips into the batter. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and then sprinkle the tops with the remaining chocolate chips before baking.
Let the baked muffins sit in the pan for a few minutes after they come out of the oven. Then gently remove them and place them on a wire rack to cool before diving in.
