Double Chocolate Muffins Recipe

Another day means we've tried another recipe, and today has been the chance to make these most scrumptious double chocolate muffins. The beauty of this muffin recipe is that the chocolate pieces are slightly hidden so each bite reveals a delightful surprise that tickles the taste buds. 

Now, this recipe is open to a bit of change up depending on what chocolate you prefer. I don't really like cooking chocolate so opt to use the regular stuff. In fact, I'm not even a dark chocolate lover, and neither are the kids, so I personally think a darker milk works quite well. In this recipe is use Galaxy Darker Milk, but you can use any you like - whether you prefer dark, milk or white, you can try any.
