Although I am not the biggest chocolate fanatic around, there are times (ladies, you know what I’m talking about) that I develop a seemingly insatiable craving for its delectable goodness.
When these urges occur, an ordinary chocolate chip cookie simply won’t cut it. I’ve come to terms with the idea that when these cravings hit, I’ve got to pull out all the stops. I’m talking chocolate ice cream with Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce, Symphony Brownies or these Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins.
I’m a little obsessed with muffins in general – they are my go-to breakfast for lazy Sunday mornings. In my opinion, there’s nothing better than a freshly baked muffin, fresh fruit and a cup of hot tea to welcome you to a new day. Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins? Ecstasy on my breakfast plate. You’re sure to have a good day when you start it out this way.
These delicious, dark chocolate muffins aren’t over the top sweet, so you won’t feel too guilty about indulging in one as a mid-morning snack. The addition of espresso takes the chocolate experience to whole different level while the semi-sweet chocolate chips offer a little texture and added sweetness.
If you like a little crunch in your breakfast, add some walnuts, sunflower seeds or pecans. They’d all be a wonderful addition to an already pretty phenomenal breakfast experience.
I’m thinking they’d be pretty great on your Easter brunch table too.
