The Ultimate Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins-perfect with your morning coffee or as an afternoon snack.

I spent the weekend with my children. I do every weekend. But this weekend, in light of everything that happened Friday, I just felt the need to be more attentive, remember the cute things they said, make sure I gave that extra hug and make sure they heard me when I said I love you.

My thoughts and prayers are with the entire town of Newtown, CT. Many bloggers are looking for a way to show support. A group of bloggers have come up with Cookies and Crafts for Sandy Hook. You can read all the details here.  I’ll be participating. I know we all want to do something, anything, to ease the suffering this town is dealing with.

We spent Sunday making muffins. We made more of my Coffeehouse Coffee Cake Muffins, we made Blueberry Muffins (recipe coming soon) and we made these Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins. The grandkids will be arriving Friday and instead of stocking the cabinets with pop tarts, we’re stocking the freezer with muffins. Still the convenience of a grab and go breakfast or snack but so much better tasting than anything out of a box. Just pop one in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and it’s like it’s fresh out of the oven all over again.

Most of them made it to the freezer, most of them. Hopefully there’ll still be some in the freezer on Friday, if not, we’ll just have to make more.
