DOUBLE CHOCOLATE MUFFINS (COSTCO COPYCAT RECIPE) — These decadent chocolate muffins, loaded with chocolate chips, taste just like the giant chocolate muffins from Costco!
You need to know, right off the bat, that I feel slightly guilty calling these muffins. If you’ve ever had Costco Double Chocolate Muffins, you know what I mean.
They aren’t fooling anybody. Because these so-called “muffins” are actually rich, moist, chocolate cupcakes….without frosting.
Whatever you choose to call them they are great for after-school snacks or breakfast on the go!
I like to use mini chocolate chips, but the regular size will work too. Either way, these are some of the tastiest chocolate “muffins” you’ll ever try!
Costco muffins are enormous, so I elected to make mine in a regular sized muffin tin. I will say–and my family agreed–that these do taste very much like the Costco variety.
I get about two dozen regular sized muffins from this recipe. If you use a Costco-sized muffin tin, you’ll get about a dozen muffins.
My youngest, who isn’t really a fan of chocolate or sweets, was pretty sure he wasn’t going to care for these muffins. But since trying them, he’s had one for breakfast every day since!
I, on the other hand, new I would love this Costco Copycat Double Chocolate Muffin recipe, and I was not disappointed. And if you just can’t finish off two dozen muffins, these freeze beautifully too!
