These muffins were a snap to put together. The recipe calls for espresso powder and brewed coffee. I had both! To gild the lily just a bit, I added mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. Coffee and chocolate do go so well together.
I tasted the batter hoping for a nice coffee punch. Hmmmm. The smell of the muffins baking in the oven was sweet and yummy, but there wasn't a lot of coffee wafting about. The taste was delicious. It was, however, lacking in coffee flavor. I know that from the "coffee" drinker, this might seem blasphemous. I really was expecting more of a coffee taste from these. Regardless, they were a hit. The Boy really liked them. The Girl liked picking the chocolate chips out of them.
I'm not sure that these hold a spot in my rotation. Then again, considering how I drink my "coffee", I just may find room for them. Thanks to Rhiani of Chocoholic Anonymous for choosing this one.
