Melissa's Cuisine: Hot Chocolate Oreo Muffins

Hot Chocolate Oreo Muffins

I'm pretty sure I did a happy dance when I received my assignment for this month's Secret Recipe Club.  I know Mike thought I had gone crazy!  You see, I was so excited because I was assigned to Alli's blog, Alli 'n Sons

I've been a fan of Alli's blog for quite some time.  In fact, I've even made quite a few of her recipes.  I knew that I was going to have fun choosing a recipe.  What I didn't realize was how difficult it was going to be to choose a recipe.  I read through each and every one of Alli's posts--stalker, huh?  I finally narrowed my list down to about 10 recipes...real narrow right?  Then it went up to 11 when she posted these Sea Salt English Toffee Bars

I finally had to decide what recipe to make because time was running out.  I actually ended up making 2 recipes.  I made Alli's Chicken Chili in the Crock-pot and then I made these muffins.  Hot Chocolate Oreo Muffins--come to find out they had caught my eye when she posted them because I pinned them!

I knew that these muffins couldn't disappoint since they had Oreos in them.  I seem to have a slight addiction to Oreos...every time they're in the house I seem to eat them non-stop!  I try not to buy them too often, but I had to buy a package to make these muffins.  The hot chocolate gives these muffins a slight chocolate flavor.  I made 4 giant muffins and 6 regular sized ones.  I took the 4 larger ones on our trip to Frankenmuth this weekend and everyone loved them. I left the rest at home for my friend who was dog-sitting for me.  She thought they were delicious--I'd have to agree with her.

You can't go wrong with Oreos!

Hot Chocolate Oreo Muffins

Makes 12 muffins

1-3/4 cups white whole wheat flour, sifted
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
3 teaspoons sea salt hot chocolate mix
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup sour cream
1 egg
1/4 cup canola oil
12 Oreo cookies, broken into large pieces

1.  In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sea salt, hot chocolate mix, baking soda, baking powder, and sugar.

2.  In a small bowl, combine the milk, sour cream, egg, and oil.

3.  Stir the wet ingredients into the flour mixture until just combined.

4.  Reserve 12 Oreo pieces and fold the rest into the batter.

5.  Evenly divide the batter into 12 greased muffin tins.  Place one Oreo cookie piece on top of each muffin.

 6.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.

7.  Cool muffins in the tin for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Store in an airtight container.
