You had me at espresso :D
I love anything with coffee and these sound sooooo amazing!
Do you recreate the recipes by guessing the measurements?
Because by the look of those muffins, you're really good at that!
Enjoy them,

Marianne (frenchfriestoflaxseeds) said... [reply]

Any recipe that involves 1.5 cups of chocolate chips has to be good ;) But help a girl out - is that brewed espresso or just the powder? I always find that confusing in recipes.

Kristy Sayer-Jones @ Southern In Law said... [reply]

These look SO good! My body isn't a fan of caffeine so i'd make them without the espresso, but i'm sure they're mighty tasty :D

Anonymous said... [reply]

One word: yum! Cascadia Bakery should hire you to bake for them. :)

OOoo - I'd much rather have these than coffee!!

Tina said... [reply]

I like the looks of those! For the espresso, the chocolate, and the sane price when you make your own.

CaSaundraLeigh said... [reply]

It's always fun to recreate things you've bought. Number one, it's usually alot cheaper. Number two, it's open to customization, and number three, yours looks amazing!
