I’m having a really hard time with this Chocolate Muffins recipe. Most people will have a muffin for breakfast. But these muffins are almost cake-like in texture so shouldn’t they be served as a dessert?

My wife’s side of the family likes to eat dessert before their meal. Not for religious beliefs or anything like that. Just because they have a sweet tooth. And well why the hell not!

    These muffins are superb. So easy to make and so moist. I used milk chocolate chips as these are my favorite. I brought them to a school function and they were a big hit. This recipe surprised me with how tasty they were. This recipe is a keeper for sure.
