Death by chocolate might be every person’s favorite way to die, am I right? I mean, I would die for these double chocolate mini muffins because there’s nothing more decadent than chocolate mixed with more chocolate and topped with more chocolate. Yeah, you read that right. These are chocolate mini muffins baked with dark chocolate chips and topped with more chopped dark chocolate. Yum!
My sweet tooth has been a little out of control lately, and I don’t think it’s slowing down any time soon, especially since my mom recently bought me a stockpile of Girl Scout cookies. I’ll take all the chocolate, please!
Anyway, let’s make some “death by chocolate” mini muffins!
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder, sifted
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
First, whisk together the flour, sifted cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and yolk with the sugar on medium power. Beat in the vegetable oil and sour cream until well-mixed. Fold in the dry ingredients and mix until barely combined. Then mix in 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips.
Spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray, and distribute the batter evenly. With muffins, it’s ok to fill the batter to the top of the cavities. It’s encouraged, actually! Gotta love the muffin tops.
Chop up the remaining 1/4 chocolate chips and sprinkle pieces over the tops of the batter. Bake on 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for several minutes before removing from the pan, and serve warm with milk for a decadent breakfast snack that will satisfy any sweet tooth.
Because they’re mini, you can totally justify eating, like, five of these…
Store in an airtight container and you can enjoy these for several days and keep them nice and soft. If you’re eating them a day or two later, I totally recommend microwaving for a few seconds to make them warm and soften the chocolate on top. Enjoy!
