If you like chocolate, you will definitely love these Triple Chocolate Muffins. It’s super chocolatey, moist, crunchy tops and loaded with melted chocolate chips! These are the best chocolate muffins you will ever have.
This Triple Chocolate Muffins recipe is made with cocoa powder, sour cream, plain chocolate chips and white chocolate chips. They are fluffy yet dense, delicious and go really well with a cup of coffee or a tall glass of milk!
Honestly, these moist muffins are actually way better than the ones you find at the bakeries. Serve them for breakfast or as a dessert at a party because you will see that they never disappoint.
In this triple chocolate muffins recipe, I used sour cream to lighten up the batter and makes the muffins really rich, yet soft as well. The cocoa powder is used to deepen the chocolate flavor. Of course, the generous amount of chocolate chips is to ensure every bite is chocolatey and yummy!
How to make (step-by-step)
Step 1: Mixing the ingredients
Turn on the oven and preheat it to 400°F/200°C. Line 16 paper muffin cases in either 1 or 2 muffin trays.
Mix the plain flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl.
Pour in the plain chocolate chips and white chocolate chips and stir them until they are well distributed.
Step 2: Making the batter
On a separate bowl, add the eggs, soured cream, sugar and butter, and mix well.
Now add it to the dry ingredients from step 1 and stir gently until all the materials are combined.
Using 2 spoons (you can use forks too), divide the batter into each muffin paper cases and bake them in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the muffins are well risen and firm to the touch.
Recipes Quick Tips
- If you are trying to get that chocolatey top on your muffins, you can reserve some chocolate chips and sprinkle onto the tops of the muffins before baking. This will make the muffins look visually appealing, bursting with chocolate. It just makes the finished product look so much better!
- Like all muffins, the triple chocolate muffins are also best eaten fresh, within a day or two. I guarantee that they won’t last past the first day!
- Storage instructions: you can freeze the muffins for up to 3 months for longer storage. To serve, remember to thaw overnight in the fridge. Then, you can either warm the muffins up in the microwave or bring them out of the fridge to room temperature.
