Ingredients

  • 1 Divine Chocolate semi-sweet chocolate baking bar 5.3 oz
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup sour cream full-fat or reduced works well
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a regular-sized muffin pan with nonstick spray or line with cupcake liners.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Set aside
  • Using a sharp knife, coarsely chop the chocolate and place in a medium microwavable glass bowl along with the butter.
  • Place bowl in microwave. Melt butter and chocolate on high in 10 second increments, whisking after each until completely smooth.
  • Remove bowl from microwave, and then whisk in the sugar, eggs, vanilla, and sour cream.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and fold to completely combine. Be sure to scrap the bottom of the bowl to get everything mixed.
  • Fold in the peanut butter chips. The muffin batter will be on the thick side.
  • Spoon the batter evenly into each prepared muffin cup, filling each almost to the top.
  • Bake the muffins for 5 minutes at 425 degrees then, while keeping the muffins in the oven reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees.
  • Bake for an additional 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove muffins from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling.
