Mocha Chip Muffins

Mocha Chip Muffins with Coffee Glaze Recipe l

Easter. Did you know that it’s less than two weeks away? I just figured that out. March flew by. I think the fact that there’s still snow on the ground has me thinking that it can’t be time for Easter yet.

If you’re in the same boat as me and need an idea for what to do for your Easter brunch, I have an easy idea for you. . .mocha chip muffins!

Mocha Chip Muffins Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

Muffins are a great addition to brunch, because they’re easy to make and can be made the day before without losing flavor or freshness. These mocha chip muffins have a light coffee flavor and aren’t overly sweet.

One of my biggest dislikes of muffins is when they are oily and super sweet. These muffins are neither. They are simply tender, fluffy chocolate muffins infused with coffee and stuffed with chocolate chips.

I can’t think of a better way to start your morning. Unless of course you top said muffins with a coffee glaze and pair them with a freshly roasted and brewed cup of coffee!

Whether you need an idea for Easter brunch or are looking for a way to make it easier to get out of bed in the morning, these mocha chip muffins are your answer!
