Hii guys!!

These delicious Chocolate button muffins happened the other day. I call them chocolate button and not chocolate chip or chocolate chunk. I love BIG fluffy muffins with lots of chocolate in each bite ๐Ÿ˜€

Cupcakes can be small cute and dainty, but muffins should always be BIG and gorgeous. And these Chocolate button muffinsย ย  perfectly fitย  my criteria ๐Ÿ™‚

Whenever I order in a bakery, I always prefer a muffinย  to a slice of heavily frosted cake. There is nothing as good as a tall muffin with a cup of cappuccino . I don’t even need company when I have a muffin in one hand and coffee in the other ๐Ÿ˜›ย  It’s such a great feeling.

These Chocolate button muffinsย  are nothing less than perfect for me. They are so easy to put together and so good to gorge on. Soft buttery and with a tall dome.

Be very gentle when mixing a muffin batter. Never over-mix. The batter is made with common pantry stuff, nothing big shot. Despite this fact they are loved by all.

We had guests comingย  over that day and they couldn’t believe that these had beenย  baked at home. A hint of cinnamon and nutmeg in the vanilla batter take the chocolate in the muffin to another level! You will know when you bake these sweet Chocolate button muffinsย  and make your house smell like a muffin bakery ๐Ÿ˜€
