Moist Double Chocolate Muffins

I love a good muffin.

I really love muffins.  I am not sure what it is about that, but I really do love them.  I know they are not the most nutritious breakfast or snack so I rarely indulge myself.  These muffins were really a nice treat. They are moist and chocolate an are delicious with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk.  I am thinking about making a few types of muffins to freeze before the baby comes...but that will require me to actually bake.  I need to find some motivation so I can share with you guys.  In the mean time, enjoy these!
