Made these gorgeous PB swirled double chocolate muffins for a tea-time get together at school and I was really glad that I was gone faster then I expected. The muffin was moist, spongy, and bursting with deep dark chocolate flavours.
I loved how the PB turned out a slightly golden hue after its baked, and that the tinge of saltiness from the PB helps bring out the bitter sweet flavour of the chocolate even more! Plus there is no need for fancy kitchen mixer! Just a large mixing bowl, small mixing bowl, and a small container for your slightly melted PB! Here’s how to make the PB swirled chocolate muffins! 🙂
