I don’t know why I have been so obsessed with sweets lately. You’d think that as it becomes warmer out, I’d crave something lighter. Nope, I want the heaviest muffin on the planet. These muffins…are the heaviest muffins on the planet. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. THEY ARE SO GOOD. I really love them for Sunday prep. They hold up really well over the week and are the perfect breakfast on-the-go. I also love them for Easter brunch. Because they hold up so well, I think they are a great muffin to make the night before Easter (which eliminates some of the work the next day). Any time I can get things done beforehand, is a very, very good thing. These triple chip chocolate muffins combine all of my favorite flavors: butterscotch, chocolate and white chocolate (i.e. vanilla). They are simple and quick to make, and you won’t even believe the outcome. They taste like the best bakery muffins you’ve ever had, except that you didn’t have to pay 4 bucks a pop for them! I especially like them in “jumbo” form, but they can also be made in a 12-count regular muffin tin or a 24-count mini muffin tin (which is expressed in the recipe below). The choice is yours!
Beer: Old Dominion’s Morning Glory
Brewed By: Old Dominion Brewing Company
Style: American Double / Imperial Stout
Description: I realize that I just paired this brew with my Mint Chocolate Chunk Monster Cookies, but when I was thinking of what would pair best with these muffins, I immediately thought of Morning Glory. It’s such a great espresso stout and if you WERE to drink a brew in the morning (that is totally up to you), then this is the beer for you. It has strong hints of coffee and really brings out the extreme chocolateyness in these muffins, and trust me, these muffins are CHOCOLATEY!
Wow, they really look like bakery muffins too! So dome-y and crackley-topped. But I’m sure they taste 10,000 times better.
Nora, I was shocked at how similar they came out to a bakery-style muffin! I think this is what I love best about them! Thank you so much, dear.
Haha. Story of my life… you’d think that as soon as it gets nicer outside, I would crave lighter foods, but I just can’t keep myself from making insane desserts and treats. These muffins are so up my alley, Justine! Love, love, love these!!
I know, right! Thank you so much, Kathi. You’re the best. ;)
These muffins look so decadent and heavenly! I do love me some chocolate in the morning. :)
Me too Tina! I love chocolate any time of day! ;)
I have been craving a chocolate muffin for ages now! I think I’ll have to give this recipe a try- it sounds fantastic! Pinning ;D
