There are little things in life that make me as deliriously happy as the smell of something chocolaty rising to the occasion in my oven! Oh, sweet joy!  The smell of freshly baked chocolate goods is enough to send me over the moon and back.

I made these on a Saturday morning for tea time.  The gooeyness of the melty chocolate are the perfect companion to a freshly brewed cuppa.  My family dug in very well into these and left none for later!  Compliments to the chef I suppose…

Now tell me that you wouldn’t love these muffins for breakfast.  Just look at all that melty chocolate chips!  

I baked these muffins in a jumbo muffin cake tin.  Who said that size doesn’t matter?  It sure makes these muffins more fun.
