These Jumbo Double Chocolate Muffins are enormous! A regular sized chocolate muffin is great and all, but what makes one extra special? When it’s double chocolate and like the size of your face. Seriously, these muffins are pretty much a meal all on their own.

When I signed up to be a vendor at a local arts festival a few months ago, I knew right away that I wanted to sell muffins, because who doesn’t like muffins? But they couldn’t just be standard muffins made in a cupcake/muffin pan. That wasn’t going to be enough. They needed to be massive. And full of chocolate!

If you are a fan of chocolate, you’re going to love these jumbo double chocolate muffins. They are moist and sweet and bursting with chocolate flavor. Which is why I waited so long to share these with you. This kind of decadent chocolate should be shared during the week dedicated to chocolate – #Choctoberfest! In addition to today, I’ll also be sharing delicious chocolate recipes with you tomorrow and Thursday.

HOW DO YOU GET THE BIG DOMED TOP ON A MUFFIN?

By starting to bake the muffins at a higher temperature. These muffins bake for 5 minutes at 425 degrees and then the oven is lowered to 350 to finish baking.

CAN I FREEZE THESE MUFFINS?

Of course. Once the muffins have completely cooled, wrap them very tightly in plastic wrap, then place them in a ziploc bag or airtight container with a lid. Muffins can be frozen for up to 3 months. To eat from frozen, let the muffin thaw to room temperature and enjoy!
