My muscari(s) are flowering, with one stalk each, but I found a new bud coming out from the base of each muscari. I think it is another flower stalk.

Can a muscari plant have more than 1 flowering stalk at a time? If so, how many can they grow? I froze them in fridge for 3 months before planting.

Muscaris can reproduce vegetatively (asexual reproduction), similar to how mints reproduce by stolons, onions by forming new bulbs, growth from cuttings, etc. In your case, the plant has produced a new bulb underground, which has given rise to a new flowering stalk. There are a couple of excellent pictures on Wikipedia showing this:
