Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins

2014-2-24-009-edited-withtextTuesdays call for chocolate, right? Speaking of Tuesdays, last Tuesday night, I worked on blog posts for last Wednesday and Thursday, and then I took a complete blogging break, which was unplanned, but really nice. I think I logged into WordPress once in the last 5 days, and it was refreshing. I love this blog, and I spend a lot of hours working on it, but sometimes I just need to take a step back and remember that it’s just a blog, and if I don’t work on it for a few days, the world won’t end. In fact, most people won’t even realize I skipped posting.

Now, let’s talk about these muffins – they’re perfectly chocolaty and the chocolate chips scattered throughout them are the best part. Basically, you need to make them as soon as possible! The only thing I noticed is that they didn’t stay too moist after a couple days, so plan to make them when you have some friends and family to share them with – that way you’re not tempted to eat them all by yourself.

    I have seriously gone through a phase where I was completely addicted to chocolate muffins. These look delicious!! I can sense a relapse…
