Death by Chocolate Muffins

Yep, you read that right! Death by Chocolate!! Chocolate overload all in one innocent muffin! Okay, maybe its not too innocent, but I like to think of muffins as healthy…..because otherwise I would put some frosting on top and call it a cupcake, haha!!

Last week, my sweet tooth was in full swing and I was in need of a chocolate fix. Since I wanted something quick and easy, I didn’t want to whip up a cake, brownies, or even cookies. Plus, muffins are breakfast food in my mind, therefore I can have chocolate for breakfast! Woo hoo!!

These muffins are incredibly moist, packed with chocolate, but not rich! I had one with my morning coffee for breakfast and it was a great sweet treat! If you can’t or don’t want the chocolate in the morning, go ahead and have these as an afternoon snack or after dinner dessert!

These muffins freeze perfectly, so you can eat one, freeze the rest, and pull one out as you want it!

Hope you enjoy these as much as my family and I did!!
