Sour cream chocolate muffin with dark and white chocolate chips. These muffins are soft, moist, and full of chocolatey flavors. They’re great for breakfast, or as a snack anytime of the day.
These muffins are so decadent, my husband and I had a debate about whether it was appropriate for me to say they were ideal for breakfast or not. He thinks they’re more for dessert, but I told him muffins, which are heartier than cupcakes, are designed for breakfast due to their denser texture. Also, any excuse to start your day off with chocolate is a good one to me. I am one of those people that actually thinks the world would be a sad place without chocolate, a chocolate lover you could say. Though there are people who don’t care for chocolate. I admire those people because I don’t think there’s a day that goes by where I don’t eat, or crave chocolate. It’s my weakness, and guilty pleasure. Anyways, enough about me and my chocolate obsession. 🙂
Ever since our good friends, John and Tanya bought some double chocolate muffins from Costco (yes, I said Costco), I’ve wanted to create my own chocolate muffin recipe. They were unbelievably good. I think I ate one everyday for a week straight, which is really bad, but anyways.
So, this is my version. I decided to go with a triple chocolate muffin because the more chocolate, the better. I wanted 3 distinct and different flavors, so I went with a sour cream chocolate, a bold dark chocolate, and creamy white chocolate. The end result is a soft, moist muffin, with 3 delicious chocolate flavors that compliment one another beautifully.
