Death By Chocolate Muffins

The teens from the libraries TAB group (Teen Advisory Board) had another bake sale today. I ended up baking most of the treats but that is okay, I had fun doing it.

I made these Death By Chocolate Muffins since the bake sale started in the morning I figured something with out frosting is a must. I also made my favorite Give Me S’more Cookies (which have almost sold out… ) You can find the Give Me S’more Cookies on MuffinsandMeat too.

cocoaIf you love chocolate you will love these Death By Chocolate Muffins…. and remember cocoa comes from a plant…there for it is healthy!
