Double Chocolate Muffins... Blogs? Huh?

Double Chocolate Chip Muffins stacked

These double chocolate muffins are simply unbeatable! Rich, buttery, chocolatey, and totally satisfying! I make these a LOT! And they are extra special because, they are what introduced me to the Blogosphere. I was once looking for a good recipe, to make for my boyfriend who had requested chocolate muffins! Annd I landed on Meeta's amazing blog! Before that, I had no idea what blogs were, had just heard of them, hers was the first blog I actually saw!

And how! I went through her ENTIRE blog, at a stretch! I was hooked! I then went to soo many other blogs on her blogroll! I read through many of those blogs too, entirely!! I had no idea what a reader was, so I used to check back regularly for new post! Then, I discovered reader, many new blogs along the way, and now, here I am with my own blog! In a way, I owe to blog to her! Thanks, Meeta! xoxo

Double Chocolate Chip Muffins


Double Chocolate Muffins
Adapted from What's For Lunch, Honey
Makes 15

Ingredients:
30 g unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
100 g semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 cup [170 g] semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup [120 g] all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup [210 g] brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 cup whole milk
1 stick [1/2 cup, 113g] unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions -
  1. Preheat oven to 180 C [350 F]. Grease/line a muffin pan.
  2. Melt the chopped unsweetened and semisweet chocolates in a double boiler or in the microwave. Allow to cool slightly
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. In a small bowl, beat the eggs at low speed, or by hand.
  5. Add the brown sugar, milk, vanilla and melted butter, stir until incorporated.
  6. Now pour in the melted chocolate mixture, and mix well.
  7. Pour this mixture into dry flour mixture.
  8. Stir until just moistened;, do not over mix. - The batter will be very liquidy. Dont worry!
  9. Gently fold the chocolate chips into batter, I like to sprinkle a few on top of the muffins as well.
  10. Pour into prepared muffin pan, only pouring until 2/3 full.
  11. Bake for 20 to 25 mins, or until mufins test done.
  12. Cool, and serve. [Though these taste absolutely fantastic warm from the oven]
Any words I'll use to describe these, in my opinion, will fall flat in comparison to Meeta's words, so I'm just going to paste those instead! "WOW! The ultimate chocolate muffin for the ultimate chocolate fan! These were so fluffy and rich that with every bite you know something so good must be a sin!"
