Nothing says Happy Valentines Day like Double Chocolate Muffins for Breakfast!

Another New Muffin Favorite of ours and a HUGE HIT in our Sunday School class at church are these DOUBLE CHOCOLATE MUFFINS. These would be a delectable treat to serve to your family for breakfast on Valentines Day :). Everyone knows that Chocolate is the food of LOVE :).

I am not sure where I came across the recipe, but I love that you use Self-Rising Flour instead of All-Purpose flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. It just makes things so much easier. I also love the way the muffin tops have a nice shine to them when you use self-rising flour. In case you are new to baking, self-rising flour eliminates the need for baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a recipe. It is often used when making fruit cobblers.

When I make these muffins, I use white chocolate chips which gives the muffin a slightly sweet flavor and makes them look especially pretty when baked :). You could also use regular chocolate chips, chocolate chunks, butterscotch chips, or the Reeses Peanut Butter chips. I am sure all of the above would taste delicious. These muffins are best served warm with a big glass of cold milk. They are loved by kiddos and adults.

So, show some love this Valentines day, bake a batch of these yummy treats, and serve them on a heart-shaped plate. Your Valentine will surely reward you :)! Enjoy!

You are prayed for and loved!

Stir in chocolate chips. Divide batter among greased muffin cups or a muffin tin lined with muffin papers. Bake at 400 degrees for twenty minutes.
