{Death by Chocolate} Triple Chocolate Muffins

Do you like chocolate? Actually, do you LOVE chocolate? Do you spend your days dreaming about living in a chocolate waterfall, near a bed of chocolate crumb sand, under a sky of white chocolate stars, on the edge of a chocolate fudge volcano? Only me? Awkward. 😉 I’ve been living without an oven for the […]
