I guess you could kinda say these muffins are what we were raised on, in a way. I remember eating them growing up- we were always thrilled to eat them- they're really stuff of childhood dreams- gooey, chocolatey, and just downright yummy. You'd stuff as many of them as you could without people looking.... and could almost get away with it.
And honestly, there's not much you can do to make them any better. Except for the fact that I always add way more chocolate chips in it. But hey, where would any cook be without an inner child busting at the seams? (oh, and the espresso powder. but that's our little secret.)
(this is my little secret. that I put in EVERYTHING with chocolate. EVERYTHING.)
