When a muffin carries the name “Nigella’s chocolate chocolate chip muffin,” I think you pretty much know that you want to eat them all and that the recipe is a keeper. These muffins are not regular chocolate chip muffins, they are chocolate chocolate chip muffins. Not only that, this is Nigella Lawson’s recipe…how can we resist them?
In the past year or so, my picky eater 3-year old son has certainly acquired a liking for all things chocolate, for examples: no-bake chocolate cake, regular chocolate cake, chocolate cupcakes, chocolate chip cookies. Whenever I am out of ideas, I turn to chocolate as I know for sure he would gobble them up whenever I offer him something made with chocolate. I don’t let him indulged in too much sugar and chocolate, but I do reward him with his favorite food whenever he is being a good boy.
So when I chanced upon this Nigella’s chocolate chocolate chip muffin recipe on Food Network, I knew that I just have to make them for him. I actually don’t mind some great chocolate chocolate chip muffins and so I baked these last week for the family. I made them into mini muffins and they turned out absolutely delicious and so pretty that I just couldn’t stop taking the photos. Happy baking!
