Chocolate Chocolate Muffins

Chocolate and more chocolate is pretty much what you'll get if you make these muffins. They remind me of the chocolate fudge muffin from Mmmuffins - dense and dark. I made them a little healthier by replacing some of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat. No one knew. Don't overbake them or they'll be dry and a dry chocolate muffin is no fun at all.

Chocolate Chocolate Muffins
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter
3 squares unsweetened chocolate
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan or line with wrappers.

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar and baking soda. Set it aside.

In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt together the butter and unsweetened chocolate. Stir until smooth, then remove from heat and let cool for just a minute. Add the buttermilk, egg and vanilla, whisking the mixture until everything is well combined. Stir in the flour mixture, mixing just until all the ingredients are moistened, then add the chocolate chips. Mix until the chips are evenly distributed.

Spoon batter into well-greased (or paper-lined) muffin pan, filling the cups to the top. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool for a couple of minutes before removing from the pan, then transfer to a rack to cool more or less completely. Makes 10 chocolate chocolate muffins.

he response is Chaussures Supra Pas Cher yes. The French fashion house has confirmed the Brit model because the face of that Boy Chanel handbag collection Chaussures Supra. [Karl Lagerfeld] has a crush during this unique, charismatic gal, who is both a model and musician, in a photo shoot a while ago, Chanel told WWD. This previously unforeseen alliance finally became self-evident. Alice Dellal represents an ideal incarnation of the which is unique around the Boy Chanel handbag collection, which strives [to be] definately not conformist notions of femininity.
Yep, Dellal is not really conventional. As well as her trademark punk-rock uniform, the petite 24-year-old is a drummer in the band Thrush Metal and will turn out to be found larking around the streets based in london with Pixie Geldof Chaussures Puma. Shes far from blonde bombshell Blake Lively, whos the prevailing face of Chanels Mademoiselle range, but Lagerfeld is recognized for his eclectic taste, previously casting Lily Allen for your Cocoon bag range in '09 Chaussures Puma Pas Cher. Furthermore, Alice's androgyny will work brilliantly together with the 'Boy' collection. How refreshing.
