Cafe Mocha Mini Muffins are a good choice, assures Tina Sawchuk of Ardmore, Alberta. "These mini muffins freeze will, so it's always easy to keep some on hand," she says. "And they're just the right size for snacking."

1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips, divided
In a small bowl, dissolve coffee granules in water. Stir in the oats; set aside. In another bowl, cream butter and sugars. Beat in egg yolk, vanilla and oat mixture. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to oat mixture just until moistened. Stir in 1/3 cup chocolate chips.
Fill foil- or paper-lined miniature muffin cups three-fourths full. Sprinkle with remaining chips. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
