Hi there! I just found your blog and started following you :) I just had to tell you that these muffins sound amazing! One tip I've learned is to dissolve some instant coffee in one of your liquid ingredients and the coffee really pumps up the chocolate flavor. I'm not sure how it works but I put instant coffee in my brownies and they are the best I've ever had!
