These Double chocolate chip muffins are the best ones you will ever have. They are super chocolaty, filled with chocolate chips, the right amount of sweetness and crunchy top. Exactly how you would want a chocolate muffin to taste like.
What is the difference between a chocolate muffin and a chocolate cupcake?
The ingredients are pretty much the same, but the quantities differ and most of all the chocolate cupcakes will have an icing on the top whereas the muffins will not have icing. Also, cupcakes will be more moist and soft than a muffin. A muffin would have a moist interior but a crunchy top.

Double chocolate chip muffins without buttermilk
Usually, most of my chocolate cake recipes will have buttermilk in it, because that’s the secret ingredient that I use to make cakes extra soft but not this one because we don’t want the muffins to be too soft but I am using a bit of sour cream or you can use plain yogurt as well, to get a bit of softness and gooiness inside the muffin.

How to bake double chocolate chip muffin
Baking double chocolate chip muffins are easy, just like cupcakes you can either use cupcake liners or muffin liners. If you don’t have paper liners, you can also spray oil on to the muffin tray and directly bake inside, but my personal preference is always to use a liner, saves time washing 🙂
When to eat muffins?
Muffins can be eaten as a breakfast snack, tea time snack or even midnight snack. well, who the hell needs an occasion to eat sweets. Eat whenever you please 🙂
How to store muffins
If you like to keep the muffins for a couple of days, make sure to store them in an airtight container the outside of the muffin can get dry if left outside with no covering.
How much batter to fill into the muffin liners
Usually, for cupcakes I would always say, fill 3/4 of the liner, but for muffins, you can fill a full liner because the best characteristic of a good muffin is the over spilled dome top which usually gets a crust when baked.
