Ingredients

For Cappuccino Muffins:

  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. whole milk
  • 2 tbsp. instant coffee granules I love Starbucks Via
  • 1/2 c. butter melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 c. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

For Nutella Ganache:

  • 1 c. Nutella
  • 1/2 c. heavy whipping cream

Instructions

For Cappuccino Muffins:

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, instant coffee, butter, egg, and vanilla.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and stir until just combined.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Line regular-sized muffin cups with paper liners. Fill 2/3-full.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  7. Remove to a wire rack to cool.

For Nutella Ganache:

  1. In a small microwave-safe bowl, pour heavy cream over Nutella.
  2. Heat for 30 seconds, stir, and continue heating at 15-second intervals until mixture is smooth.
  3. Drizzle over muffins. It's best if the muffins are mostly cool before drizzling the Nutella ganache because it will run off more quickly if they're warm, but it's also super delicious to drizzle it over warm muffins. Just know that it will be messier. :)
