  • 3 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Cup cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Cup milk
  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 Cups milk chocolate chips plus more for garnish, optional


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray or line with liners. In a large bowl, add in the dry ingredients and whisk until combined, set aside. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar until combined. Add in the milk, butter, vanilla, and sour cream. Mix until fully combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry slowly and with a large spoon, mix until there are no more dry spot and all the dry mixture is scrapped off the bottom. The mixture will be slightly lumpy, do not over mix.
  • Pour in the chocolate chips and fold in. Spoon muffin mix into tin or liners to the top, but not overflowing. Pop on a few more chocolate chips right on top so they are extra yummy looking when they come out.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 5 minutes, lower the oven temperature to 375 and continue to bake for 18-20 minutes. Do not over bake or muffins will be dry. Muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean with a few crumbs. Let sit in the pan for 10 minutes, serve and enjoy!
