I love anything with a chocolate and peanut butter combination. These mini muffins are no exception. I always make these as minis because they are rich and dense.   Yield: 24 to 36 mini muffins

Ingredients

Muffin Batter

  • 1 and 1/2 cups flour (I use white whole-wheat)

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup Gefen Cocoa Powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup milk

Peanut Butter Cheese Layer

  • 1 (8-ounce) container whipped cream cheese, room temperature

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 egg

Streusel

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup flour

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened

Directions

Prepare the Muffin Batter

1.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line mini muffin pans with mini liners.

2.

In an electric mixer, combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, milk, oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Mix until a smooth batter forms. Set aside.

Prepare the Peanut Butter Cheese Layer

1.

In an electric mixer, beat cream cheese with sugar. Add egg and peanut butter and mix until combined. Spoon into a piping bag or zip-top bag.

Prepare the Streusel

1.

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, butter, and chocolate chips with your fingers until crumbly.

Assemble and Bake

1.

Fill liners halfway with muffin batter. Pipe two teaspoons of peanut butter mixture on top. Sprinkle with streusel (you will have leftover streusel).

2.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
