Cappucino Muffins

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Espresso Spread:
4 ounces cream cheese, cubed
1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Melt the first two ingredients in the microwave. Mix in the next three. Cover and refrigerate until serving. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In another bowl, stir milk and coffee granules until coffee is dissolved. Add butter, egg and vanilla; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 375 for 17-20 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool and serve with prepared espresso spread.

These are FABULOUS! I love the espresso spread. They're pretty rich even without the spread.
