Since making these Double Chocolate Chip Muffins the very first time a few months ago, I’ve probably baked them more than half a dozen times. They seem to come out perfectly every single time. They literally rise to the occasion. These Moist Chocolate Muffins are soft and tender and the addition of white chocolate chips and an optional teaspoon of mint essence really gives it that extra flavour.
A few months back I shared my version of the Chocolate Chip Mugg n Bean Muffin Recipe. These Chocolate Chip Muffins were giant, soft, and fluffy and had the perfect muffin top. So, why fix what ain’t broken? This Easy Double Choc Chip Muffin Recipe is based on the same recipe with just a few additions. I simply added some Cocoa, White Chocolate Chips, a Teaspoon of Mint Essence, and 1/4 Cup of Milk.
This resulted in the Best Double Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe. The typical bakery style chocolate muffin you just cannot resist!

How to make Easy Double Chocolate Chip Muffins
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, Cocoa, and salt. Add the chopped white chocolate chips.
Combine the milk with one tablespoon of lemon juice and let it stand for 5 minutes. In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, sugar, eggs, milk mix and mint essence (optional). Slowly add the wet to the dry ingredients, and gently fold together until just combined. Remember not to over mix at this point.
Finally, divide the batter into 12 muffin cups and bake at 220 degrees Celsius for 5 minutes. Then reduce the oven temperate to 190 degrees Celcius for another 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
These Double Chocolate Chip Muffins should have the perfect muffin top, but should be super fluffy and moist on the inside!
Until next time!
