Hidden Secrets of a Muffin

Every muffin tells a story.  Of course, usually, their lives are not long so their stories are limited.  This muffin tells a story of sweetness and love with some bumps along the way.  To find this love, you have to eat one of these muffins.

2/3 cup of baking cocoa
2 large eggs
2 cups of flour
1 cup of chocolate chips
1/2 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 1/3 cups of milk
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
12 half teaspoons of peanut butter
Preheat your oven to 400°F.
Coat muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray or use liners.
In a large bowl, combine the cocoa, flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and vanilla.
Stir in half a cup of chocolate chips.
In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, oil and milk.
Add the egg/milk/oil mixture to the other ingredients until moistened.
I used a regular ice cream scoop to fill each muffin tin one half way up. I used about 2/3 of batter.
Place about three mini marshmallows on each muffin (batter).
Place peanut butter, attempting to cover marshmallows.
Using remaining batter, cover peanut butter and marshmallow so you now have chocolate icing.
Sprinkle with the remaining chocolate chips.  I did not do this.  It is rich enough for me without frosting or additional chocolate.  Yummy good.
Bake for about twenty minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack before removing from the pan
Sweet and Savory

I was offline for a few days and I hoped the muffin went through. It seems it did. Thanks for liking it. It is good. Jen, you don’t need the marshmallows. That was a treat for my kids.


Oh my LORD! I’m in love with a muffin! Looks amazing! I’m not a huge marshmallow fan so I might leave them out, but otherwise? Bring ’em on!!
