According to my family, I am a chocolate addict. I eat chocolate day and night. I make so much desserts and cakes with chocolate that my hubby thinks I only know one ingridient and that is chocolate.
I am trying to make different desserts but I always tend to be partial to chocolate.
I can see on my expanding waistline too, that I have been too much indulging on chocolate.
Especially bloghopping is not helping, I look to blogs and If it is having chocolates then i bookmark them and tend to make as soon as I can.
This is one of those recipie I found in Deepa's place. I am sure you don't need a introduction to her place as you all will be knowing it, still what the heck I will say it :-) Passionate About Baking and the title says it all, she is really passionat in baking.
I have so many recipes I have bookmarked from her place.
The Moment I saw this Mocha Walnut Choco Chip Muffins I knew I was going to make them.
I made them for my daughter and her friends. I am sure I have mentioned , every tuesday my daughter brings her friend/friends home after school and she knows her mom will make somthing for her and her friends.
So that is what i did on tuesday, made these and oh yes I heard them saying wow really delcious muffin. And then yesterday her friends asked when is your mom going to make muffins again, so from that you can know how much they like these ones, so this recipe is a keeper.
You should go to her place , there is a whole information about muffins
