chocolate-chocolate chunk muffins

Will you think less of me if I admit to you that I don’t really “do” chocolate for breakfast?  I eat sweet stuff for brekkie all the time–usually pancakes or waffles drowned in syrup– but chocolate for some reason feels a bit too indulgent.  I made a little exception this past weekend (since it was a holiday and all) for these Chocolate-Chocolate Chunk Muffins.  OK, these  really are great with coffee.  They’re not too sweet at all, and I did follow suggestions to add more chocolate chunks by doubling the amount of chips I folded into the batter at the end.  Hey– if your gonna have chocolate for breakfast, you may as well really have chocolate for breakfast.

And, if chocolate in the a.m. isn’t really your thing either, I can assure you that they are also fab for dessert with a scoop of ice cream (may I suggest something like Strawberry- Sour Cream Ice Cream?).

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan (it’s also here on Epicurious) or read The Way the Cookie Crumbles, as Bridget got to pick again this week.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!

  1. Your photo made me laugh! This recipe did aim for a tospy turvy muffin – and succeeded.

  2. Oh, how I wish I didn’t love chocolate, scones, muffins, french toast that should be classified as a dessert etc for breakfast! These were good with extra chocolate and fresh made strawberry jam.

  3. They look very good..I love how you turned them to the side in the pan..great photo! I just made mine this morning…

  4. These weren’t too sweet, which made them great for serving with sweet jam/preserves. Yours look great!

  5. Beautiful muffins. And that ice cream sounds fab, too. I’m getting so hungry sitting here reading all these posts! 🙂

  6. Love the picture!

  7. craving some!

  8. I have to confess – I’ve never even had chocolate chip pancakes. I agree with you that chocolate for breakfast just seems too indulgent! But I figured I could make an exception for my own TWD pick. 🙂

  9. Oh, strawberry sour cream ice cream on these sounds great! Too bad I don’t have any left!

  10. Love the way you photographed these. When I first saw the photo I thought they were popovers, so that is always fun to look at a photo and need to think about it for a few seconds before you know what you are actually seeing. I so want to be you. Nice muffins…guys here think chocolate if for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, anytime at all!

  11. they look gr8!

  12. Exactly!! If you go, go big!! Add more chips.
