Cappuccino Muffins
Big thanks to Connie for sending in this luscious sounding treat! Cappuccino muffins with mini chocolate chips in the batter and a cinnamon sugar topping.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. instant coffee granules
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup miniature chocolate chips

TOPPING: 6 TBSP all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup cold butter
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugars, baking powder, coffee granules, cinnamon and salt. Whisk the egg, milk, butter and vanilla; stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourth full. For topping, combine the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over batter. Bake at 375 for 22-24 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
