Spicy Chocolate Muffins

At my favorite little cafe, there is a delicious muffin that is chocolately and a little bit spicy.  It is not sold on it’s own, it is always accompanying a salad or fruit cup.  It’s only available on the baker’s whim, never predictable and therefore a treat.  I cannot get them any time I please, which frustrates me to no end.  I’ve never had another chocolate muffin like these, others are all kind of bland after having the complex joy of these special spicy chocolate muffins.  I set out to recreate it, and I have to say I got pretty close.  I may try to add a bit of orange rind or cinnamon next time, you should try your own variations!

I just lightly dusted with confectioner’s sugar and put them on dainty heart shaped doilies.  Of course, my boys didn’t appreciate the presentation one iota, but they did gobble up the muffins in a heartbeat.

And because it’s Valentine’s Day and I think you’re rad, here’s my most favorite little love story on the Internet.

About Hayley


Born and raised in the cornfields of Indiana, Hayley (aka: The Tiny Twig) has very recently moved back to the Hoosier State. She and her husband have two preschool aged little boys, 23 months apart. They are mistaken for twins all the time, which she think adds to the charm of having two crazy boys! She tries to balance living a life of beauty with living a life of adventure, and is slowly realizing the two coincide more often than she thinks. Wanting to bring the profound, the excellent, and the glorious into even the mundane things we do everyday in life, Hayley can be found blogging at The Tiny Twig.
