Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Muffins Recipe

May 24, 2020

Have you ever heard of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Muffins? If you haven’t you are in for a treat with these muffins. If you have, try this recipe to make them at home. 

Muffins are great for an easy grab and go kind of snack. We have even used them for breakfast on occasion. The kids love these muffins and will eat the whole batch if they could. Everyone who tries these muffins asks for the recipe.

What are Ice Cream Muffins?

What do you mean ice cream muffins? How can there be ice cream muffins? The melted ice cream goes into the muffin batter. This gives the muffins the same taste as if eating the ice cream, without worrying about it melting.

How to Store Mint Chocolate Chip Muffins

Mint chocolate chip muffins should be stored a room temperature. Be sure they are in an airtight, sealed container or freezer bag. This will keep the muffins fresh. As the muffins are exposed to air, they dry out and taste stale. 

How Long Do Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Muffins Last? 

Typically muffins, like cupcakes, last about three days. If the muffin starts to taste a little stale, you can microwave the muffin with a moist paper towel to lessen the dry stale taste. If you are worried that the muffins will go bad before they are all eaten, you can freeze the leftover muffins to eat later.

    I love this idea because I believe that in summer everything should be with ice cream even batter for muffins. By the way, the muffins look delicious.
