How to make chocolate muffins

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together the dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda in a mixing bowl.

Step 2: In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients: sugar, sour cream, milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract.

Step 3: Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined. Do not over mix, as this will result in dense dried out muffins. Fold in the chocolate chips using a rubber spatula.

Step 5: Bake the double chocolate muffins at 350 degrees for 17-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Do not over bake these as it will dry them out.

  • in the refrigerator: store leftover chocolate muffins in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
