Mother’s Day Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins
What are your plans for Mother’s Day? With mother’s being so revered you would think that Mother’s Day would come with what every mama wants: time, rest and peace and quiet. Time, rest and peace and quiet, in my opinion, are the things mothers so appreciate, mainly because we get so little of it. I’m not complaining – it’s just the truth. I look at friends and family members without children (those young, not retired). And you want to know what amazes me? How much time they have that they don’t even realize! It’s understandable. Who misses their water until the well dries up? But still I can’t help but scoff under my breath if I hear someone without children say they don’t have time. You don’t have time??? Seriously? I love my three! I would not trade them or my motherhood experience for anything in the world. But if I were being honest with myself, I know that if I were to not have had children yet by this age I could have written three novels, opened up a few businesses and still had enough time left over to take a twenty minute nap every day. I’m just saying. I know that this Mother’s Day will not come with time, rest or any peace and quiet. But it’s okay. I am actually used to it by now. I have resolved to just be like my mama and wait until everybody’s grown and gone to enjoy resting in free time peacefully. In the meantime I suppose…chocolate and sugar will have to do.
1 cup sugar 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 2 eggs 1/2 cup melted butter 2 cups flour 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp baking soda 3/4 tsp salt 1 cup unsweetened chocolate powder 1 cup buttermilk 1 tsp vanilla 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
DirectionsPreheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar and then add eggs. Mix well. Add ½ of flour mixture with ½ buttermilk. Mix cocoa with remaining flour mixture. Mix remaining flour/cocoa mixture and buttermilk with batter. Fold in semi-sweet chocolate morsels. Use ¼ measuring cup to spoon into muffin tins. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Have a wonderful weekend with the family!!
