Clearly coffee is a need in the morning, but I would argue chocolate ain’t a bad idea either. Well guess what, I got both for you.
I’ve teamed up with Nestle Tollhouse to make and share great recipes using their new flavors of chocolate chips. First up are these espresso chips! These are so full of coffee flavor, I love them. I decided to make these chocolate muffins and elevate them with some subtle coffee flavor using the espresso chips. Because coffee and chocolate are buddies and they need to stick together.
These are super easy chocolate muffins, perfect for those busy mornings to grab and go or on a weekend morning still in your sweats.
You gotta try this one! Follow me over on Facebook and Instagram @lolohomekitchen. Be sure to snap a pic if you make a Lolo’s recipe and tag it with #lolohk. I love to see what you are making!
