Hot Chocolate Oreo Muffins

hot-chocolate-oreo-muffins

I love recipes that take a classic ingredient and turn it into something extraordinary. I am always trying to think of recipes that make me think out of the box and bring my readers a new sense of creativity into their kitchen. Get ready for this one girls, it’s worth it!

Hot chocolate  is one thing; hot chocolate and oreos is another but Hot Chocolate and Oreo Muffins means you are playing with the big boys now! You may think these muffins are out of your league but trust me- You Can Do This- and before you know you will have a new favorite treat that will wow anyone who hears you mutter the words hot chocolate Oreo muffins.

I got the idea for Oreo muffins from my new blogger friend Baker Street. Her Oreo muffins look surreal and who wouldn’t want to gobble down a dozen of those babies! Click here for that recipe. I then got the idea to incorporate hot chocolate into the batter because I had some leftover Mexican hot chocolate mix that I had made from Christmas and since it is now HOT- yes HOT- here in Houston I thought I would use it up in the batter. AMAZING! It was just amazing! A combo of hot chocolate and crunchy Oreo’s is something every kid or rather adult should have at least once in their life!

Note: In case you are wondering where is the chocolate color? Although these muffins have hot chocolate mix in them, the amount of mix I included in the batter wasn’t enough to make a full blown chocolate color. You are more than welcome to add as much or as little hot chocolate mix as you wish. The more the merrier but for a subtle chocolate flavor 1-2 teaspoons is just enough!

    I’m curious about the hot choc mix- as the muffin didn’t turn all chocolatey! but I could just imagine fluffy and crunch of oreos!

      I know! Funny they aren’t chocolate color but that is because I used my homemade cocoa mix (which is lighter in the brown color) and I only used a few teaspoons which wasn’t enough to actually turn the batter chocolate

    Allright, these have to be a million calories each- and I would probably eat the whole batch. I’m still drooling over the biscoff pudding from the other day…

    I just read in the New York Times today that Oreo’s 100 birthday is eminent..that is the only store-bought cookie we keep on hand for night snacks. Your muffins are a great celebration of this little circle of joy.

    My boys would love this muffin! I have been buying the Trader Joe’s version of Oreo’s, personally I think they taste better and have no trans fat too! Anyhow, these look great and like how you used what you had on hand, like leftover Mexican hot chocolate mix!
