Apparently I’m on a muffin kick this weekend! These are from a blog called “The Bitchin Kitchen” which you can find at http://www.thebitchinkitchin.blogspot.com. Zach just ate one and said they were really good, I haven’t tried one yet. They have lots of chocolate in them so they must be good!
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped (I used my Dove dark chocolate)
2 cups flour
1 rounded teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup semisweet chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1 Preheat oven to 350. Line muffin tins with paper liners.
2 In a double boiler, melt butter and coarsely chopped semisweet chocolate, stirring to combine. Once melted, set aside to cool for a bit. (Or you can melt them in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, like I did.)
3 Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
4 Whisk brown sugar into chocolate mixture.
5 Whisk eggs, buttermilk and vanilla into chocolate mixture.
6 Add flour mixture to chocolate mixture, all at once, then use spatula to fold the flour mixture into the chocolate until you no longer see bits of flour.
7 Fold the dark and semisweet chips into the batter. (I added the white chips here too rather than top the muffins with them.)
8 Scoop batter into paper liners.
9 Bake 16 – 18 minutes or until toothpick inserted into muffins comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pans 5 minutes.
10 Melt white chocolate chips then drizzle over tops of muffins.
I doubled the recipe and ended up with 36 muffins.
