  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Dutch process cocoa powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips plus more for topping
  • ½ cup milk chocolate chips plus more for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare a 24-cup muffin tin or two 12-cup tins with liners or cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, combine milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla. Whisk until incorporated and egg yolks are broken. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Fold the wet mixture into the dry ingredients. Do not overmix, but make sure you do not have any dry spots.
  • Spoon batter into the prepared tins to fill about three-quarters of the way full. Sprinkle on additional chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 20–22 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool in tins for about 10 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.



Make ahead of time. Place in a large resealable plastic bag and store at room temperature for 3–4 days or in the refrigerator for 7 days. These muffins also freeze well. Place muffins in a single layer in a resealable plastic freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
Baking time. Because each oven seems to bake a little differently, it can be easy to overbake muffins. Check your muffins about 5 minutes before the end of the baking time. Insert a toothpick into the center of a muffin. If it comes out clean, your muffins are done; otherwise, cook for another few minutes.
CHOCOLATE BREAD. Prepare the chocolate muffin batter and spoon it into two well-greased 5-x-9-inch loaf pans. Bake at 350°F for 38–42 minutes. Let cool in the pans before moving to a wire rack.
