Triple Chocolate Muffin Tops

I recently purchased a muffin top pan and have had muffins on the brain ever since. I finally got a chance to put the pan to use with these triple chocolate muffin tops.

They combine dutch process cocoa powder, milk chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips. The addition of chocolate jimmies as a garnish adds that extra little something. They are chocolatey goodness my friends.

My favorite part of a muffin is the top so now I can enjoy a muffin without the added bulk of eating a full one. These are in no way trying to mimic the healthy muffin tops you can purchase at the super market but I may play around with the recipe in the future and come up with a healthier version.

Triple Chocolate Muffin Tops

Triple Chocolate Muffin Tops


  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup dutch process cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • chocolate jimmies for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Prepare muffin top pan with non-stick spray or shortening.
  3. In a large bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips.
  4. In another bowl combine the milk, oil, eggs and vanilla. Whisk until the yolks are broken and everything is well incorporated.
  5. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Do not over mix but make sure all the dry ingredients are mixed in.
  6. Fill each section of the pan with approximately 1/4 cup batter. I used a #16 scoop.
  7. Sprinkle extra chocolate chips & jimmies on top for garnish.
  8. Bake for approximately 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  9. Let muffins cool in the pan for about 10 minutes and then move to wire rack to finish cooling completely.
  10. Yield: 12 muffin tops


Recipe adapted from Chocolate Overload Muffins

They tasted even better the next day. I individually heat sealed mine and froze them so I can have them ready to take to work whenever I’m craving a muffin. You just can’t go wrong with a chocolate muffin.
