Loving the peanut butter/chocolate combination but fancy a change? These muffins definitely tempt the taste buds. (I have a tendency to prefer bitter sweet chocolate yet here, paired with the mild taste of Cashew a good quality milk/semi sweet chocolate approx 40% cocoa solids is recommended), enjoy! NB This recipe makes 6 reg sized muffins but can be doubled with equally successful results.
