3 Ingredient Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins


I used to be obsessed with those single serving packs of mini chocolate chip muffins as a kid. You know, those ones that come in the white plastic bag, that were almost always impossible to open, and only contained, like 4-5, mini muffins that you scarfed down within minutes. I would pack them in my lunch each day for school, and was just truly enamored by these tiny little muffins.


And if we're being honest, nobody liked the blueberry ones. Nobody. I remember being so upset whenever my brothers got to all of the chocolate ones before me, like that scene out of Home Alone when Kevin realizes there's no more plain cheese pizza.

It was a sick obsession, you guys.


Fast forward to present day, and most recently, my newfound obsession with making mini donuts and cakes, and here we arrive at these chocolate chip muffins. I made a million and one batches of mini donuts over the holidays, and this was just one the many varieties that came out of my kitchen during that faithful time.

Not only were these a hit, but my brother, who is none short the critic, ate about 90% of the container that I brought over on Christmas Day.

So... there's that.



3 Ingredient Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 box white cake mix (just the mix!)
1 1/2 4oz containers (or 1 1/2 cups) of unsweetened applesauce
1 cup water
mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 and grease your mini muffin or donut pan. 
(my pan only yields 48 donuts, so I had to do this in two batches.)

In a large bowl, combined dry cake mix, applesauce, and water. Mix everything until it's well combined and batter is smooth. Toss in as many chocolate chips as you'd like and fold them into the batter.

Spoon batter into your pan and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Keep an eye on them! 

Allow muffins to cool before popping them out of the baking tray and serving.

Enjoy!
