While I wasn’t looking forward to my kids going back to school, and summer being over, I have enjoyed the quiet mornings with my cup of coffee.

And what goes better with that coffee than a chocolate muffin, packed with MORE chocolate, espresso beans, and BAILEYS® Coffee Creamers?! 

The other day I had a reader comment on my facebook wondering if I spend my time baking all day. The answer is DEFINITELY NOT. Honestly? I probably only bake treats once a week, maybe twice if we have a party or bbq to attend. Occasionally though, I may bake two different things that day. Or I may bake three revisions of the same recipe until it’s perfect. But, on average, treats are only coming out of my kitchen about once a week.

So when I DO bake something, and when I do go to enjoy a muffin or cookie, I want it to taste amazing. These muffins are perfect. I’ve added in some BAILEYS® Mudslide Coffee Creamer. The sweet coffee creamer added so much flavor and moisture to the muffin! I also used some vanilla Greek yogurt, espresso powder, and chocolate chips! Right before sticking them in the oven, I crushed up some chocolate covered espresso beans and sprinkled them on the batter.

Good grief, words cannot describe how amazing each bite of this muffin tastes…between the sweet chocolate, deep espresso flavor and the crunch of the bean! I think you need to trust me and go back a batch for yourself.

Best part? These freeze really well. Each batch makes about 18 muffins (regular sized). So you can eat some now and freeze some for later. Or double the recipe and freeze a whole bunch. You can wrap some up and give them as a gift to a hostess this holiday season with a bag of coffee, a mug, and a bottle of BAILEYS® Mudslide Coffee Creamer.

Comments & Reviews

  1. BAILEYS Mudslide Coffee Creamer is one of my favorite flavors! I love these muffins and can’t wait to give them a try. 

  2. It is funny that people assume we’re in the kitchen all day, every day, making delicious things. They always seem so disappointed when I tell them “actually . . .  it’s more like a ton of computer stuff.” LOL. However, I would NOT mind a day of computer work if I had a plate of these muffins next to me. Chocolate covered espresso beans are my love language!

  3. Haha, I am secretly looking forward to the day when my kids will all be IN school and I can actually have a quiet cup of coffee! Is that wrong? Lol. I would definitely need some of these muffins to go with!

    1. Nope not wrong at all 🙂 Although, I imagine you’ll have that reflective moment when they are of “OMG how are they all so old, and grownup. How am I so old?? LOL”

  4. I get a lot of those “you bake and eat sweets all day?!” and the answer is a big fat NO. Haha. 
    These look AMAZING! 

  5. Quiet mornings with coffee and these awesome muffins sounds like the perfect way to start out the day!!!  I’m loving the crushed espresso beans on the top!!!  Delicious!!!

  6. Baileys Creamers are my favorite! I have yet to try the mudslide one! These muffins look perfect to pair with a cup of coffee! 

  7. Oh wow – these are pretty darn amazing – especially LOVE the BAILEYS® Mudslide Coffee Creamer in them! 

  8. I could really go for another cup of coffee with this creamer in it AND one of these muffins this morning. It’s been rough! I love the addition of the chocolate covered espresso beans. Wonderful! 

  9. The espresso beans in the batter are totally calling my name! I made some chocolate chocolate chip muffins from a package yesterday and I only got 6… boooo!! These look so much better and chocolatey! 

  10. Dear Aimee, I don’t think it could get any better than a quiet morning with a cup of coffee accompanied by one of these muffins.  The best to start the day. xo, Catherine

  11. You definitely make the best use of your baking time, Aimee. The other day, my daughter said, “Mommy, you bake too much. Play with me more.” And my heart just split open. Aaaaaah.
    This is probably the coolest muffin flavor ever. Who could resist these?

    1. Oh boy, talk about a tug at the heart strings Mir!! It’s so hard with little ones to find that work/life balance 🙂
