DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS








DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS

Double chocolate – these dense cake-like or brownie muffins are rich-tasting and absolutely addictively delicious.  If you like your chocolate fix, this will surely help in that regard.  We loved these and they didn’t last very long as a result!
