Delectable kick-start-your-morning-muffins that might just help you get through the morning and bed down your chocolate craving at the same time. This is a recipe from a friend of mine that I have altered a bit. Enjoy!
Dissolve Starbucks Via instant coffee in warm milk. Stir and mash with a spoon up against the side of the bowl until instant coffee is completely dissolved. Next, add melted margarine, egg and vanilla and whisk until combined.
In another bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
Pour wet ingredients into a well in the center of the dry ingredients and stir well to incorporate completely. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.
Fill muffin tins 2/3 full and bake at 375° for 17-20 minutes.
These muffins are pretty sweet and caffeinated, so the icing is really just a much quicker way to send you into some kind of sugar or caffeine-induced coma. You don’t really need it.
BUT should you choose to heed no warning and care nothing for your pancreas and make the icing anyway, start by beating together the butter, sifted powdered sugar (which you can use more than two cups of to attain the right consistency) and vanilla. In a small bowl, mix the Via Instant Coffee together with the boiling water until coffee is dissolved. Add it to the butter mixture and mix until fully incorporated. And now if you have gone and done this, you have probably inadvertently crossed that faded line from the muffin world into the cupcake world. C’est la vie!
