Double Chocolate Raspberry Muffins

Double Chocolate Raspberry Muffins

I was debating whether to call these muffins or cupcakes. But I think anyone that eats chocolate muffins for breakfast understands that, that distinction is always hard to make when your having chocolate for breakfast. The only real reason I’m calling these “muffins” is because I took my Blueberry Sour Cream Muffin recipe and altered it slightly to make it Double Chocolate Raspberry. Can I get a whoop whoop?

My husband isn’t really a fan of raspberries but he devoured these for breakfast, snack and dessert, so I’m guessing he thought they were pretty good. I’m a die-hard chocolate-raspberry fan so these were pretty much heaven in cupcake form for me. A moist chocolate batter with gooey chocolate chips and fresh bites of sweet and tangy raspberry. Mmm.. what could be better?

Whether you decide to call these muffins or cupcakes I advice that you make them a super-indulgent breakfast sometime soon.

What’s your favourite breakfast splurge?
