TWD Chocolate-Chocolate Chunk Muffins


Dorie says 'these slightly sweet goodies straddle the divide between cupcake and muffins'. I think I probably tipped the scale toward cupcake when I added an extra 3 ounces of dark chocolate. I made 48 mini muffins, they were just delicious. I took them to a holiday brunch and brought home an empty basket. They were light and chocolaty, the chunks of melted dark chocolate added interest. They were a hit.
The complete recipe can be found on Bridget's blog, The Way the Cookie Crumbles. Or purchase 'Baking: From My Home to Yours,' by Dorie Greenspan.


 Spend a few moments at Bridget's Blog. It is fun! She often does recipe comparisons, which lemon bar, red velvet cake, chocolate chip cookie, etc. is really the best? She also has a great section on Food Photography, read it and learn! It has been a pleasure to get to know Bridget.

I love your red, white, and blue layout in the picture! I added extra chocolate chunks, too. It was impossible to stop myself!

Mmmmm, these look so good with the red jam! I reckon these were more cake than muffin.

That must be the key--tons of extra chocolate! ;) Love your stack of red, white and blue plates!

I added more chocolate (on accident) and they are definitely a dessert! These look great.

I wish I added extra chocolate. Can never have too much chocolate!

Okay, I won't lie, the chocolate looks chocolatey and you know me and that, but I will tell you that I love that first photo with the little vignette of life pictured, very nice. It would be such fun to be a guest and be presented with a plate like that!

Your festive photos are lovely. I added both extra chocolate and sugar to the top, these were so good!
