Chocolate Suprise Muffins

I was in the chocolate mood the other day, so I pulled a wonderful book I got for Christmas called The Golden Book of Chocolate published by Barron’s. Wow.. what a book. It is a hard back book, with golden edged pages totaling 702 pages, with pictures of the each recipe to drool over. I started flipping through the muffin section and found a recipe that I had most of the ingredients for. So I took the recipe for the Chocolate Surprise Muffins, and adapted it just a little. What I really like about this muffin is that it isn’t a very sweet muffin, but is loaded with chocolate flavor.

Chocolate Surprise Muffins


  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 c. butter, melted
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 4 T. mini chocolate chips
  • White chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line cupcake tin with cupcake papers or grease and flour tin.
  3. Beat flour, sugar, cocoa, eggs, butter, vanilla, baking powder, and milk in a large bowl with mixer on medium speed until blended.
  4. Spoon fill cupcake papers a little less than 1/2 full.
  5. Place white chocolate chips piled in the center.
  6. Cover with more batter to so the papers are 2/3 full.
  7. Sprinkle mini chocolate chips on top.
  8. Bake 20 – 25 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Cool on racks

Makes 12 delicious muffins.

Helpful Hints:

  1. The original recipe used small chocolates in the center instead of the white chocolate chips.
  2. Make sure that the white chocolate chips are complete covered with batter or they will poke through the top as they bake.
