Chef’s Notes: I took the ideas of several different recipes and devised my own, which resulted in these dessert-like muffins that are bursting with chocolate and have just a little tang of cranberry.
Triple Chocolate Cranberry Muffins
Makes 12 muffins
1 3/4 C. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 T. cocoa powder
3/4 C. cane sugar
1 cup milk
1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 C. dried cranberries
1 C. white chocolate chips
Semi-sweet chocolate chips, about 1/4 cup
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients (flour through sugar). In a small mixing bowl, combine wet ingredients (milk through vanilla). Make a well in the dry ingredients, slowly add wet ingredients, and stir just until combined. Gently fold in the cranberries and white chocolate chips. Do not overmix,
Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin, filling each liner about 3/4 full. Sprinkle semi-sweet chocolate chips over muffins. Bake 20 minutes, or until set and springy. Cool on wire racks.
