instant coffee muffins with coffee frosting :)

so i found these on tasty kitchen and am borrowing moms kitchen and supplies to make them :D

  • 2 packages Starbucks Via Instant Coffee
  • ½ cups Warm Milk
  • ¼ cups Melted Margarine
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 cup Flour
  • ⅓ cups Sugar
  • 1-½ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chips
  • _____
  • ½ cups Butter, Softened
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar, Or More As Needed
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla
  • 2 packages Starbucks Via Instant Coffee
  • 1 Tablespoon Boiling Water

Dissolve Starbucks Via instant coffee in warm milk. Stir and mash with a spoon up against the side of the bowl until instant coffee is completely dissolved. Next, add melted margarine, egg and vanilla and whisk until combined.

In another bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

Pour wet ingredients into a well in the center of the dry ingredients and stir well to incorporate completely. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.

Fill muffin tins 2/3 full and bake at 375° for 17-20 minutes.

These muffins are pretty sweet and caffeinated, so the icing is really just a much quicker way to send you into some kind of sugar or caffeine-induced coma. You don’t really need it.

BUT should you choose to heed no warning and care nothing for your pancreas and make the icing anyway, start by beating together the butter, sifted powdered sugar (which you can use more than two cups of to attain the right consistency) and vanilla. In a small bowl, mix the Via Instant Coffee together with the boiling water until coffee is dissolved. Add it to the butter mixture and mix until fully incorporated. And now if you have gone and done this, you have probably inadvertently crossed that faded line from the muffin world into the cupcake world. C’est la vie!

however, i don't have starbucks instant coffee, so i used dollar store instant coffee. i haven't put the frosting on them yet, as they are still cooling down, but then i'll frost them and eat them :) i'm bringing some back to my house; i made this at my moms.

I forgot that powdered sugar flies in the mixer if you put it on i made it snow in the kitchen :)
