These muffins take the premise of the double chocolate muffin and twist it around. Chunks of roasted cocoa nibs in the streusel give you the essential bitterness of chocolate while chocolate bits in the crumb add sweet punch.

Cocoa nibs taste more like a nut than they do like a bit of chocolate, but within that nuttiness lies a mysterious chocolate flavor. Try using them in place of nuts, as part of a granola mixture, or even in rubs for meats. You can find them in specialty stores, from some chocolate manufacturers, and online.
