Espresso Chocolate Muffins

Espresso Chocolate Muffins

Chocolate for breakfast? You don't need a better reason to get out of bed than that. Especially when it's in the guise of a muffin.

Note: I used a standard size muffin tin with 1/3 cup volume. If your muffin tin has smaller cups, your yield will be higher.
