  • Large Mixing Bowl


  • 1/2 cup butter (melted, and cooled slightly)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 3/4 cups chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees farenheit.
  • In a large bowl, combine your butter and white sugar. Stir together till smooth.
  • Stir in the milk.
  • Carefully stir in the eggs and vanilla extract, just until combined.
  • Fold the sour cream into the batter.
  • In a separate bowl, combine your dry ingredients - flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir together.
  • Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients carefully with a spoon or rubber spatula. Don't over mix.
  • Fold in 1 1/2 cups of the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop the batter into a greased muffin tin (or a tin lined with paper cupcake liners.) Fill them each about 3/4 full.
  • Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup of chocolate chips on top of the muffin batter.
  • Bake the muffins for about 5 minutes.
  • Then lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees.
  • Continue baking the muffins for an additional 12-16 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out mostly clean (a few crumbs are okay)
  • Remove the tray from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely. (Or enjoy immediately warm - though they may crumble apart a bit).
