A coffee house favorite in an easy chocolate muffin! 

Chocolate muffins with a hint of caramel macchiato: a coffee house favorite! www.lemonsforlulu.com

 

In high school, you could find my girlfriends and I hanging out on Friday nights at the coffee houses located around the University of Cincinnati campus.  We thought we were so cool.  We’d order the fanciest, overpriced coffee drinks possible and if we were able to get one with a shot of Kahlua, well then, we really thought we were something.

We would maturely sip our coffee’s in the dimly lit cafe with trendy jazz music playing in the background and pretend to be philosophizing about poetry or politics.  In actuality we were discussing who was going with whom to the prom and what they were going to wear.  We were such posers.

Back then, I had few expenses so I totally could afford to spend money on several mugs of fancy coffee.  As I grew older, so did my number of expenses.  And now, I’m just too darn cheap to spend money at coffee houses!  This is why I indulge in several bottles of flavored coffee creamer.  I can imagine myself drinking an Irish Coffee without actually paying for an Irish Coffee!

Recently I discovered that baking with coffee creamer yields some rather mouth-watering results!  I’ve made donuts, and french toast and today I made muffins.  Actually, I made chocolate muffins that remind me of one of my favorite coffee drinks; caramel macchiato!  These chocolate muffins have caramel bits and are made with International Delight Caramel Macchiato flavored creamer.  Just like any respectable coffee shop, I drizzled caramel over my muffins.  It worked.  The perfect macchiato replacement!  They are absolutely delectable.  All I need is a little Miles Davis and I’ll feel like I’m back at my favorite old coffee-house.

 

Me and my muffins have to go philosophize poetry and politics.  Why don’t you grab some coffee, some creamer, a caramel macchiato chocolate muffin and come join me.

  1. These cupcakes look absolutely wonderful! What a great idea for a sweet treat! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Boy does that sound familiar! My friends and I (also in high school) used to go hang out in Starbucks and think we were SO cool for ordering super caffeinated drinks that really only made us jittery haha. Now as a college student I actually need the coffee to survive, which means I sure as heck can’t afford to buy it all the time. As much as I love my instant coffee (not so much) I think these muffins look a zillion times better. Sure they don’t have any real caffeine in them, but I think the awesomeness might do something to wake me up!

  3. Your photos are incredible! I can’t wait to try these!! I am salivating in my desk chair :) Thanks for sharing! ~Rachael
