Who believes that there is such a thing as muffins? Well, keep telling yourself that because it seems to make it easier on the conscious to eat cake for breakfast . I like to think these little chocolate chunk cupcakes are muffins so that is what I’m sticking with . If you have a craving for chocolate then this is the blog hop to be a part of, you will want to bookmark this so that you can use it for a chocolate reference for the future. I am so glad to be a part of this wonderful group of bakers/bloggers who turn out beautiful and delicious food not only once a month but daily, so don’t forget to show some chocolate love and check out the other foodies recipes. I am a chocolate lover and I have to eat it daily even if it’s just a handful of chocolate chips, I have grown to love dark chocolate over the years and now health professionals are even saying it’s good for you, gotta love that. I wanted to try a baking recipe that had ricotta cheese since I have been seeing some recipes with it and I wondered how well it works, that’s when I found this recipe from Joy of Baking. If you haven’t been to Stephanie’s site you need to check out all the wonderful recipes she has, wow! The recipe I used here is fabulous, I made some miner changes, I used chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips and sifted all my dry ingredients to get any lumps out. I’m here to tell you that these muffins are really good, they have a great texture, they are dense and chocolaty but not too heavy feeling. The sweetness in these muffins is just right for a guilt free breakfast. The only thing I would change the next time I bake them would be to use half cake flour to get a lighter muffin and maybe some cinnamon and nuts, I like the flavor of cinnamon with my chocolate.
