OK, so really this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, chosen by Rhiani of Chocoholic Anonymous, is supposed to be for a coffee flavored muffin – which I’m sure you can see plenty of if you visit the TWD blog and follow the links of my fellow bakers. I didn’t really see sharing coffee muffins with my kids and definitely not all those muffins just for me so I decided to tweak the recipe and turn them into hot cocoa muffins.
Where the recipe calls for 1 cup of hot coffee, I subbed 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of water, heated till just boiling then added 3 tablespoons hot cocoa mix (from my homemade recipe) plus whisked in a 1/4 cup of chocolate chips till they melted. I could have just drank that and been happy!
The resulting muffins were a light milk chocolate flavor and were moist and delicious. While I am definitely a super chocolate lovin’ gal, I really liked the light chocolate flavor too.
