I’m not calling them muffins. I’m not calling them cupcakes.  They are somewhere in between. 
They are muf-cakes!

½ cup Toll House espresso chips
¼ cup (½ stick) butter
1 cup Oakhurst Coffee Whole Milk

2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 cups flour (Gluten Free Measure for Measure Flour)

Dash of salt (omit if using salted butter)

  2. Melt together butter and ¼ cup of chocolate chips either in microwave or on stovetop
  3. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. In a separate bowl (I used a standmixer but could totally be done by hand) mix milk, egg, and brown sugar. Once blended, add melted butter & chocolate. Mix.
  5. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until smooth.
  6. Add ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips and ½ cup espresso chips. Mix.
  7. Fill prepared muffin cups almost full with batter.
  8. Bake 20-25 minutes
  9. Let cool before topping with Oozy Cream Cheese Frosting!

Updated: Scratched the cornstarch. Not needed.
