Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

Sharing is caring!

The Easy Double Chocolate Chip Muffins in this recipe are made from scratch, and my kids think they’re better than muffins from the bakery! They turn out fluffy and moist, and are FULL of delicious chocolatey flavor.

These double chocolate chip muffins are a delight to enjoy not only in the morning for breakfast, but also as dessert after dinner!  While the recipe IS made entirely from scratch, the batter takes just a couple of minutes to mix together with a mixer. The result is SO GOOD and well worth the tad bit of extra effort vs a muffin mix. 

My family really loves to enjoy one molten hot (not too hot, don’t burn your mouth!) right out of the oven that they top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  The kids voted this the ULTIMATE chocolate muffin recipe!

Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and prepare a muffin pan by spraying with nonstick cooking spray or lining with cupcake liners (silicone liners are reusable!).

In a large bowl, beat together the eggs and sugar until thickened.

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan, filling each cup to the top.

This recipe should yield 36 mini muffins, 12 regular sized muffins, or 6 jumbo muffins.

Bake Jumbo Muffins 5-10 minutes more than you would regular muffins. 

Bake the muffins in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

The muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Allow to cool in the pan for five minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

How to Unthaw Double Chocolate Chip Muffins:

The best way to thaw muffins is to transfer the desired quantity from the freezer to the refrigerator so they can thaw naturally overnight in the refrigerator or in a cool, dry place. 

How to Reheat Double Chocolate Chip Muffins:

We prefer to reheat our muffins in the microwave until the desired temperature is reached. Pop a sliver of butter in the middle of the warm muffin, it’s delicious!
