Hot Chocolate Muffins


  • yield: approx. 20
  • The original recipe called for two tablespoons baking powder which seemed like an awful lot and I was afraid that the recipe should have read teaspoons instead of tablespoons. Using two tablespoons was the right amount. Don't be afraid.
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 6 tablespoons hot chocolate mix I used my Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • Cream together butter and sugar. Add egg yolks and mix well.  Pour hot water over chocolate mix and stir until dissolved.  Pour into butter mixture along with milk.
  • Sift flour, baking powder and salt.  Stir into butter mixture.  Add vanilla and stir.
  • Whip egg whites  and fold into batter.
  • Spoon batter into greased muffin tins filling each cup at least 3/4 full.  I filled them full until the batter came just to the top of the cup.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.  Cool slightly and remove from tins.
