I confess. I love chocolate and it doesn't matter what kind of chocolate it is. Dark, milk . . . in cakes and cookies . . . good candy bars, good chocolates . . . pies and puddings. The only kind I am not fond of is chocolate milk or chocolate ice cream. I'm not even really fussy on hot chocolate drinks. I don't know why that is. It is a mystery to me too.
The Toddster of course, he doesn't like chocolate in any form other than chocolate candies or hot chocolate. I know! It just ain't human, but I'm not complaining as that always means more brownies for me!!
Chocolate Baked goods are notoriously difficult to get a good photograph of. I don't know why that is. I apologize for a lack of tasty photos of these fabulously delicious muffins. No matter how I tried, they just did not want to come out right. Nevermind . . .
You will just have to take my word for it that they are tasty. Moist. Chocolaty. Stogged full of three kinds of chocolate. Hard to resist . . . and . . . mine, all . . . mine. I ain't complaining!
*Triple Chocolate Muffins*Makes 8 extra large muffins, or 12 regular
I have just one word for these . . . mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm . . . Warm they are divine. Cold they are bliss. Maybe a bit too much like dessert to be a muffin, but why quibble. A rose by any other name and all that.
Whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, soda and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together the buttermilk, egg and vanilla. Pour this along with the melted chocolate/butter mixture over top of the dry ingredients. Stir just to combine. Fold in all of the chocolates. Divide the batter evenly amongst the muffin cups. They should be at least 2/3 full.
