When I made these coffee muffins, Courtney said “what makes them different than cupcakes, other than no frosting?” I didn’t have a good answer for her. I think the lines between cupcake and muffins gets a bit blurred, but I reminded her of her t-shirt that says that muffins are ugly cupcakes. Awww, poor muffins. They really aren’t ugly, but yeah…they aren’t all fancy like a cupcake.
To make Chocolate Chip-Coffee Muffins, you start by combining iced coffee, butter, vanilla extract, and an egg in a small bowl. Then, you combine flour, sugar, chocolate chips, baking powder, and salt in a larger mixing bowl. The coffee mixture is added to the flour mixture.
The batter is divided evenly among 12 muffin cups lined with paper liners.
Bake at 400 degrees F for about 18 minutes and you have these little mocha delights. Great for a quick breakfast or a snack.Print
