What’s the best thing to have with your morning latte? Java Chip Muffins, of course! There is coffee, there is fudge, there is chocolate chips, all the wonderful things in one.
I buy Silk Iced Latte pretty often, for those busy mornings when I don’t have time to brew a cup. A few days ago, when I got another carton, I decided to get creative and instead of just drinking it, I baked with it.
Cooking and baking is another art form for me, so here is the display of my art! What a delicious art it is!!
While enjoying our delicious muffins and iced latte (some may have been enjoying their second muffin), hubby and I came up with a fun poem:
Soft, moist, chocolatey with a hint of latte….mmmmm, Java Heaven!
Java Chip Muffins
- 12 tbs butter softened
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup sour cream
- 3 eggs room temperature
- 2 tbs hot fudge
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup Silk Mocha Latte
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- About 2 tbs mini chocolate morsels for sprinkling
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line the 12 cup muffin pan with cupcake liners.
In the large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition.
Add the vanilla, sour cream, hot fudge and Silk mocha latte. Beat until well combined.
Sift in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Beat on low speed until just mixed.
Fold in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.
Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin pan, filling each cup until almost full (but not completely.)
Sprinkle the muffins with mini chocolate morsels.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the muffins are lightly golden on top and a toothpick, inserted in the center, comes out clean.
