Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Muffins

I'm having a serious case of day-off-itis today. All I want to do it sit around and watch How I Met Your Mother or go ice skating. Does anyone else want to go ice skating? Come with me! I don't particularly want vacuum or grocery shop or return my library books. This blog post is a compromise. It involves sitting down but also is on my to do list so I guess it's a win-win. Also, I get to share this delicious recipe with you guys.   
 You want some real talk today? Here it is:
 Back to the muffins, they're tasty. Light and fluffy and sweet. Perfect compliment to a class of milk on a blustery morning.
And no mixer involved, only a wooden spoon, a large measuring cup and a mixing bowl. And a muffin tin, but that's implied.
