A couple of months ago, while reaching for a box of Jiffy Corn muffin mix at a Hartford, Connecticut supermarket, I noticed a display of Jiffy Chocolate Muffin Mix for the first time. The following week, I purchased a box of the chocolate muffin mix and after eating muffins made from the mix, I purchased yet another box of the mix.

The net weight of the standard sized box of Jiffy Chocolate Muffin Mix is seven ounces (198 grams). According to the product’s nutrition facts label, the package contains about five 1/4 cup servings.

Consistency / Texture
When baked according to package instructions, this chocolate muffin mix produces some very nice muffins and / or brownie- like chocolate cake.
The first time I utilized a box of Jiffy Chocolate Muffin Mix, I made six small muffins and the second time I used a box, I simply poured the batter into a baking pan and made a cake of sorts.

Taste / Flavor
Ever since I first saw this product on the shelves of a local grocery store, I was curious about the flavor offered by Jiffy Chocolate Muffin Mix. After eating it twice, I have to say I do like the way this muffin mix tastes.
To be honest, the muffins and cake produced by this mix taste a lot like brownies. The baked mix is not too sweet and the chocolate flavor is definitely appealing, but I think the muffins could benefit from the inclusion of more and / or bigger chocolate chips. On a flavor scale of one through ten, I would assign this product a rating of 8.75.
Jiffy Chocolate Muffin Mix is packaged in a a fairly small cardboard box. The white and blue label design is virtually identical to that of Jiffy Corn Muffins, except an illustration of chocolate muffins graces the front of the box, instead of corn muffins.
Inside of the box, the chocolate muffin mix is further packaged in a paper pouch. The side and rear panels of the box list all relevant ingredient and nutritional information, as well as some excellent recipes that utilize the muffin mix.
All things considered, Jiffy Chocolate Muffin Mix is an inexpensively priced product that produces tasty muffins (and cake). When preparing these muffins, all that is needed is the mix, one egg and 1/4 cup of milk. In less than 20 minutes, muffins made with this mix can be prepared and baked. Jiffy Chocolate Muffin Mix is a recommended item.
