Additionally, you can add chocolate chips or chopped nuts as desired for added texture and flavor.

Once you have gathered the ingredients, it's time to proceed with the recipe. First, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease it to prevent sticking. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In another bowl, whisk together the melted butter, granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined. Gradually add the dry ingredients mixture to the wet ingredients mixture, alternating with milk.

Mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix as it can result in dense muffins.

If desired, you can fold in the chocolate chips or chopped nuts at this point to add extra chocolate flavor and texture. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full. Optionally, you can sprinkle some additional chocolate chips or nuts on top for decoration.

Bake the muffins in the preheated oven for about 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Once baked, remove the muffins from the oven and let them cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
