Triple Chocolate Muffins

Anybody up for dessert for breakfast?! I don't know about you, but I never turn down chocolate. Never ever.

These Triple Chocolate Muffins are decadent, dense, and extra in all the best ways thanks to rich chocolate bars, dark cocoa powder, and dark chocolate chips. In case you're wondering, yes, these are August Gloop approved!

Triple Chocolate Muffins

Yield: 16—18 muffins

1 cup granulated sugar

¾ cup firmly packed light brown sugar

3 large eggs

¼ cup unsalted butter, melted

½ cup sour cream or yogurt

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

½ teaspoon distilled white vinegar

3 cupes all-purpose flour

¾ cup plus 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

3 ½ teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt

¾ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon instant espresso powder
