Triple Chocolate Muffins

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

2 eggs

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.
