Notes: I always have trouble with chocolate muffins because they are so dessertlike I just cant eat them for breakfast! Chocolate and strawberries are my FAVORITE combo, and this is just what I needed today. A bit of a hangover, just broke up with my boy, and about to go play slosh ball in the park with a group of college boys…a muffin made from my 2 favorite things is just the ticket. They are light and fluffy, and I even thought they would be good with peanut butter chips in them. This recipe was one of the hardest for me to make...i just did not want to bake today, but I am so close to the end I cant quit now! I hope you make them and love them guys, they sure as hell perked me up and put a fat ol smile on my face.
