I remember looking at a dessert menu at a restaurant once with my dad and sister and reading ‘Death by Chocolate.’ “That,” my Dad said “we need to order. Death by chocolate is how I want to die!” I was probably 12 at the time so I did not quite understand the humor there. But now, death by chocolate is what I think about when I make and eat these muffins. So rich, so full of chocolate, so good! Oh and brownie points – no butter or oils are used to make these muffins! I also snuck in some whole-wheat flour, though this is optional!
