Chocolate and strawberries are made to go together. Enjoy the delicious combination by making my Chocolate Strawberry Muffins.
It’s February which means Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Of course, we all think about eating chocolate and strawberries so I decided to create Chocolate Strawberry Muffins.
In a large bowl, I combined the flour, baking soda and salt. Then mixed in the sugar, cocoa powder and 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips. In another bowl, I whisked together the egg and yogurt. Then I whisked in the coffee, vegetable oil and vanilla extract. The coffee enhances the chocolate flavor without leaving a coffee taste in the muffins.
I poured the yogurt mixture into the chocolate mixture and added 1 cup strawberries. I stirred the batter just until blended. I spooned the batter into the lined muffins tins so they were 3/4 full. To finish them, I sprinkled the tops with the remaining strawberries and mini chocolate chips before I put them in the oven.
