Next week is Thanksgiving, and I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. Even though we have not celebrated a traditional Thanksgiving together as a family, I still plan to have a few homemade holiday treats around the house.

Last week a Divine gift box full of chocolate delights arrived, and I was so excited to get into the kitchen and start baking something up.

Lately H has been exposed to treats more often, but the problem with a lot of these deserts is they are very sweet and I don’t know what is inside of them. I prefer to make treats for him at home, and bring them along with me to swap out. I am a huge fan of anything mini for H, the perfect size to satisfy a craving but not cause an overload. So I decided to make some Mini Divine Chocolate Muffins for My Strange Family!


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Divine cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Divine Baking Bar grated
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable
  • 1 large egg


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Grease 24 mini muffin tins.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients, flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and grated chocolate.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together the milk, oil, and the egg.
  5. Add the dry ingredients and stir just until combined.
  6. Fill the muffin cups 2/3 full.
  7. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until a tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean.

These muffins are not extremely sweet so perfect for you little ones. Plus Divine Chocolate is Fair Trade.
