I made these mini mocha muffins again last night and I CANNOT STOP EATING them…and neither can my family!! As we know, the combination of coffee and chocolate is a match made in heaven and these little mocha babies are filled with mini chocolate chips and a they have hint of coffee flavor. They are insanely moist and perfect for taking to a brunch or just any ol’ random time you feel like eating the best muffins ever!mini mocha muffins, mini muffins, chocolate muffins, blueberry muffins, coffee, coffee muffins, breakfast, dessert, easy, recipe, cream cheese, mocha spread, cream cheese spread

And let’s talk about the mocha cream cheese spread. It’s not too sweet but has that cream cheese bite that balances out the sweetness of the muffins perfectly! The muffins can definitely stand alone but why would you not make the spread?! I mean, it’s cream cheese…and more chocolate! mini mocha muffins, mini muffins, chocolate muffins, blueberry muffins, coffee, coffee muffins, breakfast, dessert, easy, recipe, cream cheese, mocha spread, cream cheese spread

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time25 mins
Servings: 45 Mini Muffins
Author: Coco and Ash

Ingredients

Muffins

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp instant coffee
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup melted butter (one stick)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

Mocha Cream Cheese Spread

  • 4 ounces cream cheese (cut into cubes)
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp instant coffee
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp milk

Instructions

For the Muffins

  • Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together your milk and the instant coffee granules and set it aside to dissolve. 
  • In a small bowl, whisk together your dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and set aside
  • Now in the bowl with the milk and coffee, add the melted butter, egg, and vanilla and whisk everything together. 
  • Add the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients and stir together just until combined then fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Spray a mini muffin pan with non-stick spray fill each spot with 1 heaping tablespoon of batter.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 

For the Cream Cheese Spread

  • If you have a small food processor, combine all of the ingredients and blend until combined. (It's ok if there's still chunks of chocolate)
  • If you do not have a food processor, soften the cream cheese (you can microwave it for about 20 seconds) and add all the ingredients to a small bowl and use a spoon or hand mixer to blend together. 

Notes

If you'd like to make standard sized muffins, bake for 17-20 minutes. (Makes about 14 muffins)

    I would have to hide these away for fear of eating all of them by myself!

    Yes to coffee and chocolate together! Such a great combo! I would love to try making these muffins gluten-free and dairy – free as I try to stick to that diet!

    That cream cheese spread on a muffin looks addictive. These muffins will definitely go fast over at my house.

    Hi! I can’t wait to try these for work!
    Have you ever tried making these with oil and almond milk? I’d love to include a batch for those that eat dairy free. I would just not include the frosting. I will be making this either way.
    Thank you for a beautiful recipe!
