Toffee, chocolate, and coffee muffins





These mocha muffins, loaded with chocolate chips (because you can't have too much chocolate), cocoa, espresso, and topped with a toffee chip streusel, are a great excuse for having chocolate for breakfast.

These muffins are also wonderful for an after school snack. You could also serve them for dessert with a side of ice cream or whipped cream. How many muffins can you say that about? Right?

I decided to make these toffee mocha muffins after searching through my "inventory" of chocolate and other flavored chips for inspiration for Muffin Monday.

I came across a bag of Heath Bits O' Brickle toffee chips in the bin of chocolate and other chips. My favorite recipes for using them are these Toffee and Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies.

My goal lately has been to make use of what I have on hand before buying new ingredients... not easy for me because I love trying out new ingredients! The hardest part was figuring out what to call these muffins.

  1. OMG, I LOVE Heath Bars and any other candy that is similar. Nuts and toffee are the perfect sweet and salty combo. I remember the first time I saw a bag of the chopped Heath Bars in the grocery store baking aisle and thought, "Genius!" Your muffins look absolutely perfect, Karen.
