You will not be disappointed in these muffins because German Chocolate Muffins are really moist and delicious. The topping really reminds me of a light version of the topping you find on German chocolate cake. And who doesn’t love chocolate? This will satisfy that chocolate craving!

I like using Devil’s Food because I believe it is traditionally more moist than some of the German chocolate mixes. The addition of the oats and nuts make it more of a breakfast treat, but the topping is so rich, you could also eat one as a snack. I believe the appearance of these muffins is very appealing because the white and black compliment each other–fitting for company coming.

My Peanut Butter and Jelly French Toast would be a perfect accompaniment to German Chocolate Muffins. Why not give the family a treat this weekend? They will thank you for it, and you are the only one who has to know how easy they were.
