These muffins are so decadent, my husband and I had a debate about whether it was appropriate for me to say they were ideal for breakfast or not.  He thinks they’re more for dessert, but I told him muffins, which are heartier than cupcakes, are designed for breakfast due to their denser texture. Also, any excuse to start your day off with chocolate is a good one to me.  I am one of those people that actually thinks the world would be a sad place without chocolate, a chocolate lover you could say.  Though there are people who don’t care for chocolate.  I admire those people because I don’t think there’s a day that goes by where I don’t eat, or crave chocolate. It’s my weakness, and guilty pleasure.  Anyways, enough about me and my chocolate obsession. 🙂

TRIPLE CHOCOLATE MUFFINS. Sour cream chocolate muffin with dark and white chocolate chips. Moist and full of chocolate-y flavors. Great for breakfast or as a snack.Ever since our good friends, John and Tanya bought some double chocolate muffins from Costco (yes, I said Costco), I’ve wanted to create my own chocolate muffin recipe.  They were unbelievably good. I think I ate one everyday for a week straight, which is really bad, but anyways.

So, this is my version.  I decided to go with a triple chocolate muffin because the more chocolate, the better.  I wanted 3 distinct and different flavors, so I went with a sour cream chocolate, a bold dark chocolate, and creamy white chocolate.  The end result is a soft, moist muffin, with 3 delicious chocolate flavors that compliment one another beautifully.
