HOW TO MAKE GERMAN CHOCOLATE MUFFINS:

Preheat oven to 425F degrees. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine both packets of muffin mix with one cup of milk. Stir until combined. Batter will be a bit lumpy – that’s okay.

Pour about a tablespoon of batter into the bottoms of each muffin tin. Just enough to cover the bottom of each muffin round.

Then take your coconut pecan frosting and dollop about a half a tablespoon onto the top of the chocolate chip muffin batter.

Then cover with about another tablespoon of batter. Just make sure your muffin tins are not more than 3/4 of the way full or it will bubble over while baking.

Notes

  • What I love about this recipe is if you just want a small portion, you can just bake up one packet of the mix to make 6 muffins.
  • Store the tub of coconut pecan frosting in the fridge and you will have it ready to make up 6 more the following week if you wish!
