Tuesdays With Dorie – Chocolate-Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Better late than never, right? It seems that every time my parents are away, I’m at my busiest. Meeting repairmen, delivering documents, running errands, picking up meds, feeding doggies… it’s the life I live. So, because of this hectic morning, today’s post is a little late. What made it a bit better, though, is the one beautiful muffin I devoured for breakfast. :)

By completely ignoring the suggestions that floated all over this week’s P&Q, I threw caution to the wind and didn’t add any additional sugar. And boy, was that a mistake. While the chunks of bittersweet chocolate packed a punch and the texture was dense (but tender), the muffins lacked a sweetness you’d come to expect from a breakfast treat of this caliber. Next time (and there will be a next time for this chocoholic), I’m definitely adding more sugar.

I did add additional chocolate chunks which helped. But the fresh strawberry jam made these a winner. Have a great day!
I do love the wrappers.

I thought the bites with chocolate chunks were ok but otherwise not too sweet. I paired mine with blackberry jam so that took care of the needed sweetness.

Isn’t it terrible when life gets in the way of blogging? :D

Your muffins are deliciously muffiny! The textured top is perfect.

They look wonderful! Maybe some jam would sweeten them up a bit.

I adore the craggy tops on your muffins – more chocolate is definitely the way to go.

Cute liners! Great craggy tops. I think I’ll sneak one out of the freezer tomorrow and see if they got a little moisture while chillin’. ;)

Great looking muffins! These seem to get sweeter to me after the first day, but perhaps my expectations were different.

I love your patriotic muffin liners – so perfect for this week Jessica! I agree about the sweetness, I wouldn’t have minded a bit more. I always forget to check the P&Q’s.

Muffins without sugar deserve some sort of goopy glaze, dontchathink? Especially ones all dressed up for the holiday! Cute.
