Today I have a cute and fun recipe just for you!! It’s chocolaty, sweet and oh so adorable! I am just loving today’s recipe! Not only are they adorable, but you get 36 cutest little muffins. Yup, I made muffins today and I haven’t made muffins in forever! I don’t know why? There are so easy and plain old fun!
These muffins are chock full of chocolate goodness! They are a triple chocolate threat! They contain, melted dark chocolate, cocoa powder and mini chocolate chips. See what I mean, a triple threat? These muffins are for the chocolate lover in your life! Or me!!!
The muffins aren’t only chocolaty, but they are uber moist too!! I used canola oil in it to give it extra moisture! Plus I also used coconut milk to give it more moister, but any kind of milk you have on hand will work. I just like to use coconut milk when I bake, it just seems to make things more creamy. Just look at the inside of the muffin.

I enjoyed my time off last week. I really liked baking in the morning and sending my Husband off to work with nice warm muffins. This is something I never get to do!! I think I spoiled my Husband last week. But it’s back to the routine. Sigh… Sorry Hubby, now it’s quick dinners, and less treats.
Have a wonderful day!
