Chocolate muffin is a go-to thing for not just only kids but also adults. No matter how much we age, our love for chocolate muffins remains constant. The sweet chocolate taste blending in our mouth together with the tenderness and softness of the muffin cake is totally worth drooling but the problem is, should we rush to the bakery every time we crave this heaven? Absolutely not! You can totally prepare them at home. I and my husband absolutely love them. Even the learnt how to make them because he knows how much I am fond of them.
