Cappuchino Chip Muffins and a Free Printable!
Cappuccino Chip Muffins
2 sticks of butter room temp
1 cup of sugar plus extra for sprinkling
4 tablespoons of espresso powder (you can use instant coffee BUT the taste won't be as strong) plus extra for sprinkling
2 cups of half and half
2 tbl of vanilla extract
4 cups of all purpose flour
5 tsp of baking powder
1 bag of mini chocolate chips (about 2 cups)
Line muffin tins with paper liners. This recipe will make about 30 muffins but is easily halved if that works better for you. Preheat oven to 375.
Cream together butter, sugar and espresso. Add in eggs, combine until mixed through. Add half and half and vanilla, combine until smooth.
Add the baking powder to the flour, then slowly add that combo to the butter/egg/half and half mixture.
Once well incorporated mix in chocolate chips.
Fill muffin tins 3/4 of the way full. Sprinkle tops with a little sugar and espresso powder.
Bake for 18-20 minutes. Allow to cool in pans.
Here is how I packaged them:
I created the printable below to pair with this recipe...getting "strength" from a little caffeine. :) If you'd like to do the same, you can download it HERE.
My preferred method of printing these is to drag it to a word file, resize it to a size that works for me and tile it on the page and print that way onto cardstock.
You can also download the shutterfly app and order them as 4 by 4in prints for FREE if you pay shipping. This printable would be great for lots of things, not just teachers! Lunch boxes, notes to a friend and more!
