Looking for a simple Christmas breakfast recipe? These hot chocolate muffins are easy to make and delicious. They can even be frozen.
I love making muffins, they are simple, not overly sweet, and you can make all kinds of delicious flavors. The possibles are endless with muffins.
My new favorite muffins are the perfect Christmas breakfast treat, hot chocolate muffins. They are made using hot chocolate mix and topped with marshmallows, what could be better?
I haven’t tried this recipe using the type of hot chocolate that contains flakes of chocolate, like the ones from William Sonoma. I’m not sure if they would work well or not since it would be hard to mix them in unmelted. If you do try it let me know!
Another great thing about these is that you can make them ahead of time, you can even freeze them. It’s a great treat to make while things aren’t too busy and pull them out for those busy mornings. They thaw quickly but you can also pull them out the night before to be sure they are ready when you need them.
I also love to make a cup of hot tea and have one of these for an afternoon snack. It really helps that afternoon sweet tooth and is the perfect little treat.
You could also add chocolate chips to the batter. I want to try adding some white chocolate chips sometimes for something a bit different.
