Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Muffins




I am a huge fan of Costco muffins.  Those huge delicious fluffy muffins that you can always only eat half of because they are so large!  I have never found a chocolate, chocolate chip muffin that is as moist and delicious as they are... that is until a recent "Girl's Night" with my best friend Heather. 

We hadn't set out to make muffins that night - in fact, she had already brought a package of mini Reese cups to satisfy our sweet tooth later on (one of the unspoken rules of Girl's Night is that whoever comes to the other's house brings chocolate and Dr. Pepper's or Tim Horton's, depending on the time of day).  I had mentioned that I wanted to try making a chocolate-chocolate chip muffin one of these days, and Heather determined that one of these days was in fact, today.  She pulled up a recipe App on her phone and we frankensteined one up until we figured out what we though would be the perfect recipe.  Heather further made the recipe awesome by placing a mini Reese in the centre of each muffin... just when you think "how could a muffin be any more delicious than this" you are wowed with a peanut butter surprise in the centre.  I hope you enjoy making these as much as we did! 

Recipe makes 24 muffins. 

Ingredients
- 2 2/3 cup all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 24 mini Reese cups (optional)

Directions
In a large bowl, sift the dry ingredients together.  

In a separate bowl, combine yogurt, water, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract.  Stir into dry ingredients until just moistened.   Fold chocolate chips into batter.  

Fill greased or lined muffin cups 2/3 full.


Place 1 mini Reese cup in the centre of each muffin.


Bake in oven (preheated to 400 degrees) for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
