Double Choco Chip Muffins

Double Choco Chip Muffins

"Burst of chocolate , is always a good beginning"

The rainy weather setting pushed me and my best friend to kick start the blog we have been meaning to write for a while. That sounds slightly off, okay so thats what really happened: the weather pushed me and I then literally pushed my friend to get his lazy bum off the couch to help me. Nevertheless, the outcome was that we had a beautiful dozen of sky high double chocolate choco chip muffins !

We added enough fats to the recipe to make the muffins moist and rich. Did the mixing just to the perfect level so that they are soft and tender. The perfect puffy domes that came out are a result of the right amount of leavening agents. So in a nutshell, we together or rather more me than we baked the crispy, soft , tender and choco chip loaded muffins !
