“The best muffins I have ever tasted and the only way I enjoying consuming coffee. Even the cream cheese spread made with them is incredible just by itself. These are super easy to make and you can add your own fun twists to them easily ("frosting" them with the spread and decorating them or filling the muffins with the spread works well!). Make sure you keep the spread refrigerated as the cream cheese in it can spoil easy. Don't plan on piping the spread with a frosting tip unless you thin it out and leave the chocolate chips out as it will be too thick. Enjoy! :]”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a hand mixer, mix together the spread ingredients, cover, and refrigerate until serving.
  2. For the muffins: In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In another bowl, stir the milk and coffee granules until coffee is dissolved. If you prefer a more mild coffee flavor, you can add less granules with no problem. The recipe does not have an extremely strong coffee flavor in the first place, though, so these are kid taste approval safe! Add butter, eggs, and vanilla to the coffee mixture. Stir into the dry ingredients until combined, but do not over mix. Fold in the chocolate chips. Fill paper-lined muffins cups two-thirds full and bake at 375 degrees F for 17-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pans. Let muffins cool all the way before applying spread, or the spread will melt.
