There is so much chocolatey goodness in these muffins. There’s yummy chocolatey goodness in every bite and they are easy to make! No wonder they’re a family favorite!

Another way to serve these Double Chocolate Muffins is they can easily be a dessert in the form of a cupcake. They are slightly denser than a cupcake but just as decadent. Frost with a fudgy frosting for even more deliciousness.

Best Baking Tip

The main tip when making muffins is don’t over mix them. You never need to use a mixer for muffins! Over mixing will make the muffins tough. Instead, you want to blend until everything is combined. There may still be some dry clumps but that’s okay. The small dry clumps will work themselves out.

Chocolate Muffins are freezer friendly!

Muffins freeze great so make extra when you’re cooking for those busy mornings. To freeze, wait until they’re completely cooled and place them in an airtight container or a ziptop freezer bag.

When you are ready to eat, you can microwave for a few seconds for delicious warm muffins. You can also put them in the refrigerator the night before to thaw some for quick reheating.
