“I do not bake often. Mostly because I really hate cleaning up the mess. Today the kitchen was relatively clean, dishes done, so I decided to play around with my muffin recipe. The smell of baking chocolate drew the kids like moths to flame and all I heard was choruses of “mommy are we having muffins for dinner?” Oh how they wish! But They did turn out very rich, tasty, and high on the chocolate factor. The sea salt top added that little something and really complimented the entire muffin. I recommend trying it at least on a few if you aren’t sure. They are just as good without it but I admit that the saltiness lets me pretend they are more adult and refined than it really is.”
