Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Muffins

Chocolate is good....muffins are usually pretty good.  So you would assume that three kinds of chocolate combined with some other stuff and turned into muffins would be amazing.

You would be wrong...but you do get a pretty decent afternoon snack though. 

Recipe: Taken from Joy the Baker Cookbook

1/2 cup unsalted butter
5 ounces of semisweet chocolate
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 cup semisweet dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

1) Place butter and semisweet chocolate in a heat proof bowl over simmering water, once melted remove the bowl from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

2) In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

3) Whisk the brown sugar into the melted chocolate. Whisk the eggs, buttermilk and vanilla into the mixture until well blended.

4) Add the flour mixture all at once and fold in. Fold in the dark chocolate chips.

5) Divide the batter between 12 muffin cups and bake for 18 to 20 minutes (mine took 18).

6) While the muffins cool melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzle over the muffins.
