What a great excuse for chocolate in the morning. This recipe came from a King Arthur Flour catalog long ago - I get rave reviews everytime I make them. So, go ahead, have chocolate for breakfast!

Made these for gift baskets for christmas. Didn't get to have a taste but they smelled wonderful!! They have more of a cupcake texture and a muffin texture. Thanks Suzanne! :)
