Enjoy your favorite mug of hot chocolate in a muffin form with our easy recipe for Hot Chocolate Muffins! These chocolatey muffins are topped with mini marshmallows, so that they don't just look like the "real thing," they taste like it, too! Mmmm...

What You'll Need

  • 3/4 cup hot cocoa mix
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows, cut in half

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine hot cocoa mix, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla. Fold egg mixture into flour mixture just until mixed. Stir chocolate chips into batter. Evenly divide batter into muffin cups.
  3. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven and top with marshmallow halves, cut side down. Return to oven 1 to 2 minutes, just to soften marshmallows. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes, then remove to wire rack to cool completely.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

a little dry, but good

these at good. I used two packets of hot chocolate mix and added enough of Hills Brothers powdered instant coffee - Mocha to make up the difference. also substituted halfhalf for milk

This is the best... thank you for all your great recipes

I have made two batches now. well worth the time. I'm taking 4 dozen as a gift to the staff involved in my husbands surgery. Only two questions 1. How do you get the chips to be all in the muffin and not fall to the bottom like mine did. 2. why are they called muffin and not cup cakes? Oh, and why as my batter runnyier than yours?

Thank you for your comment! We're so glad to hear you loved 'em and are sharing the goodness! :) To answer your questions: 1) Try tossing the chips in flour until they are coated, then gently stir them into your batter. This should help keep the chips on top. Also, don't let your batter sit too long after mixing. 2) We call 'em muffins because they are dense like muffins, and not light and fluffy like a cupcake. 3) We're not sure why your batter is runny, but it may be due to overbeating. Hope these answers help you out for the next batch!

I have homemade hot cocoa mix. Will try with that and try to get back with a review. Thanks for all the ideas.

Use cupcake paper liners. This turns out really good. I suggest covering after cooled off as they dry out.

My family really enjoyed the hot cocoa muffins.
