Chocolate Chip Ricotta Muffins

These Chocolate Chip Ricotta Muffins are moist and topped with melted chocolate. I love these muffins, they are not too sweet and are made with ricotta. Also, they have a denser and creamier texture, are fluffy and chocolaty. The batter for these Chocolate Chip Ricotta Muffins is very thick, almost not pourable. You actually have to scoop it into the muffin tins. However, don’t be alarmed, you will get some fluffy and good looking muffins.

I completely adore their texture and the level of sweetness. Sometimes store bought or coffee shop muffins can be too sweet. On the other side, these muffins are soft, tender and perfectly sweetened. Adding ricotta to baked goods is one of my favorite things, it creates the most perfect and tender crumb. In addition, it gives it a soft and creamy texture while still being light and fluffy. If you have some Maraschino cherries on hand, definitely add some on top, they make the muffins look so much more festive!

Yes, you can! First, cool muffins completely and do not frost. Then, wrap tightly each muffin in freezer wrap and add them in batches to freezer bags. Muffins can be stored frozen for up to 3 months at 0 degrees F or lower.

These cupcakes look SO decadent and delicious. I never have used ricotta in cupcakes before so this is an idea I need to try.
