Fall Into Flavor - Chocolate Muffins

Fall brings cooler temperatures and sends us into the kitchen to warm our homes and our senses with the aromas and tastes of good food. Lid at 2nd Cup of Coffee is hosting Fall Into Flavor to give us an opportunity to share some of our favorite healthy decadent comfort foods.

I got this recipe shortly after I married from a woman at my church who brought these to an event. They were a staple at any ladies tea or brunch, and I think of her whenever I make them. Fair warning though: it is impossible to eat just one, and since they are bite-size, it's easy to lose track of how many you've popped in your mouth!

Chocolate Muffins

Melt and set aside:
1/2 c. margarine
1/3 c. chocolate chips
Mix:
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. flour
2 eggs
Add to melted chocolate, mixing well.
Add:
3/4 c. pecans
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Grease & flour miniature muffin tins. Using small cookie scoop, spoon batter into pans. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Immediately remove from pan and cool on wire rack. Makes 2 dozen miniature muffins.

Head on over to 2nd Cup of Coffee to find more recipes!

OH, so it has something like a ganache for frosting! Yum!

At first when I read "I got this recipe shortly after I married from a woman" I thought you said, "I got this recipe shortly after I married a woman ...."

Now we all have to go out and buy mini muffin pans, or regret getting rid of the mini muffin pans I had at my last yard sale!

Why does this all have to come just when we are seriously talking less calories at my house? We have put the big plates away and are limiting seconds and sweets.

I love chocolate muffins. Should i save this for later -- and if I do does that mean I am planning to fall off the diet wagon?
