This evening I was feeling like I should make something for lunches this week. I came across a recipe for Hot Cocoa muffins and decided to change it up a bit and put some espresso in them. I am sure these will not last long and I will have to make something else in a couple days. That is with hiding them and dishing them out as I please. If I left them out, they'd be gone by tomorrow.
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup hot cocoa mix
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp instant espresso powder
1 tbsp vanilla
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
In a large bowl combine, flour, sugar, hot cocoa mix, baking powder, salt and espresso powder. Set aside
In another bowl whisk together eggs, vanilla, milk and butter.
Add wet mix to dry and stir until just combined.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Divide into 12 lined muffin tins.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
