Starbuck’s Hot Cocoa Chocolate Chip Muffins

Starbuck's Hot Cocoa Chocolate Chip Muffins

Some more muffins from our St George trip, these come from a blog called “Amanda’s Cookin” and are pretty yummy too.  

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup Starbucks Hot Cocoa Mix (I used Stephens Chocolate Mint Truffle Hot Cocoa Mix cause that’s what I had)

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla

3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I used semisweet)

1  Preheat oven to 375.  Spray or line muffin pan with liners

2  Combine sugar, flour, cocoa mix, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.

3  In another bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla, milk and melted, cooled butter.  

4  Fold egg mixture into flour mixture.

5  Place 1 tablespoon of batter into each muffin cup.  Add chocolate chips to remaining batter in bowl and fold in.  Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.  (I just mixed the chips into the whole bowl of batter and then scooped them into the cups.)

6  Bake 15 – 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Let cool in pan 5 – 10 minutes before removing.

(I topped my muffins with a spoonful of mint sugar, recipe here, before baking and then when they came out of the oven, I put a couple of chocolate chips on top.)
