Chocolate Muffins

I made chocolate muffins today at Tom’s request.  I never really thought of chocolate as making a good muffin for the morning.  I suppose for those that are true chocolate connoisseurs would disagree with me.  These muffins would compliment a morning cup of coffee or a cup of tea. 

I made six jumbo muffins and between Tom and Brian they have eaten five of them.

  1. Hi Liz,

    I know my son would love these! I will have to give them a try. I know he’d eat all 6 jumbo muffins at once– such a growing boy. 🙂



  2. Morning Liz! Oh what a yummy start to my day when I came here! I just copied this recipe too, and plan on making them tonight when I get home from work! Great pics of them too!

    Hazy, hot and humid here again. Ugh, I sure am wishing for fall right now!

    Have a happy Wednesday my friend!
