Double Chocolate Muffins ( Costco Copycat)

Ok now lets take about the BEST muffins you will ever eat..These moist, tender, double chocolate muffins are amazing. They are so good, so chocolaty, every bite you take you get a chocolate muffin that is loaded with chocolate chips. I cant tell you enough to make these muffins. Who doesn't love Costco muffins, well I sure do the chocolate ones. These are so easy to make no mixer, one bowl, few ingredients that you will already have at home. I have to say I like these even better. At Costco the muffins are huge though and I cant eat the entire muffin, these are made in a regular muffin tin, but by filling almost to the top, (this will make 21) they become darn close to the size of the ones at Costco. And you can make them right from home, I was and I am determined to make their double chocolate and their chocolate and vanilla swirl with chocolate drizzle ones.


3 large eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon water
1 1/8 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup sour cream
1 box Devils Food Cake Mix
1 box ( 3.9 ounce) box chocolate instant pudding
3 cups ( 1 bag) semi sweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line 21 muffins tins with liners.
2. In a large bowl mixing bowl add the eggs and lightly beat 
3. Add oil, milk, water, vanilla, and whisk until combined
4. Pour in sour cream, whisk for 30 seconds until smooth, and then add cake mix, pudding mix and                       cinnamon, do not over mix the muffins or they will become tough
5.  Stir in 2 1/2 cups chocolate chips and stir until fully incorporated, and fill muffin liners 3/4 full 
6. You will have 21 muffins, then place the other 1/2 cup of chips and place on top of the muffins 
7. Bake for 16-23 check after 16 minutes ( mine took 20 minutes)or until a toothpick comes out clean OR the tops spring back. 
8. The muffins will become high in the muffin tins as they bake, that is okay. 
9. Remove immediately from muffins tins and let cool for 10 minutes, then store in n airtight container.  If the container steams because they are not fully cooled, don’t freak out, that just means they will not dry out.
