By the Batch - Triple Chocolate Muffins

This past weekend I told my husband I would bake him whatever he wanted most and he picked these Triple Chocolate Muffins. I copied this recipe out of a book years ago, long before blogging and the need to credit my sources, so if you recognize where it's from please let me know. And if this is your first time seeing this recipe then let me tell you that these are the most chocolatey delicious muffins you will ever eat!

½ tsp baking soda
1 ¾ cups flour
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ cup white chocolate chips
2 eggs, beaten
1 ¼ cups sour cream
½ cup brown sugar
6 tbsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400. Line 11 holes of muffin tin with paper muffin cases. Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda into a large bowl, add the chocolate and white chips and stir.

Place the eggs, sour cream, sugar and butter in a separate bowl and mix. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir gently until just combined.

Divide the batter between the paper cases and bake for 20 minutes or until well risen and firm to the touch.

According to Sarah:
I think it's a good thing that the recipe only yields 11 muffins because these things are addictive. Chris calls these "dessert muffins" since they are so packed with chocolate. But it's not just the chocolate that makes them great - the sour cream makes them super moist and just the right consistency. Just be sure not to over bake because they do try out very quickly. With how good these are and how easy they are to make they'll easily become a favourite in your house if you give this recipe a try!
