TWD: Hot Cocoa Muffins

Photobucket


OK, so really this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, chosen by Rhiani of Chocoholic Anonymous, is supposed to be for a coffee flavored muffin - which I'm sure you can see plenty of if you visit the TWD blog and follow the links of my fellow bakers.  I didn't really see sharing coffee muffins with my kids and definitely not all those muffins just for me so I decided to tweak the recipe and turn them into hot cocoa muffins.

Where the recipe calls for 1 cup of hot coffee, I subbed 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of water, heated till just boiling then added 3 tablespoons hot cocoa mix (from my homemade recipe) plus whisked in a 1/4 cup of chocolate chips till they melted. I could have just drank that and been happy!

The resulting muffins were a light milk chocolate flavor and were moist and delicious. While I am definitely a super chocolate lovin' gal, I really liked the light chocolate flavor too.

You're such a clever girl to substitute cocoa. Great idea!

What a great idea! Why didn't I think of that?! My husband loves coffee and he appreciated these muffins but next time I'll make your version.

Pamela said...

Really!? What a fab idea. I'll have to remember that for the future. Great pictures, too!

Great call on the substitution I may try yours but wouldn't have conidered the others, just don't like coffee or the smell of it.

I love the idea of hot chocolate in these, that is a suggestion I was planning to make to my mother who definitely is NOT a fan of coffee no matter what the form.
