Double Chocolate Chips Muffins


because I’m on a diet trying to fit back into my lovely jeans,

because last night I had the honor and pleasure to take part to an amazing event organized by Sandy Chu where I gave a short presentation of Expat Cucina to a number of other bloggers in Shanghai,

because chocolate is my number one addiction

and because I love you!

I am going to share with you today this decadent recipe for double chocolate muffins!

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips + a few more
