Hey guys, its Hannah! So this is just going to be a quick post--got a lot of school work to do. Anyways, the reason for this delicious creation is....I lost a bet to my friend who told me he was going to meet Jennifer Lopez. I didn't believe him so we bet on it and the loser had to make the winner food. Sooooo this is what I decided to make! Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup yogurt
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate chips) 
  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Line a muffin tin with baking cups 
  • Combine butter, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla in a mixer (I used a KitchenAid) and blend until the ingredients are combined
  • Add the eggs, milk and yogurt and blend until combined
  • Then add the 2 cups of flour and blend until fully combined and fluffy. I had the mixer on for 2 minutes to make sure the mix would be really fluffy
  • Once you get the mix fully combined and fluffy add the chocolate chips and mix them in with a baking spatula or a spoon. 
  • Spoon the mixture into the muffin tin so its around 3/4 of the way full (or more). Place in oven and bake for 23-28 minutes. Mine were done in 24 minutes
  • Take out of the oven and ENJOY <3
Woohoo! Our first recipe to kick off the fun times ahead! And, we're 
pretty happy with the result of this one. I, personally, was in the mood for a fruity, spongy, flavorful muffin that didn't have to reach sky high with sugar content in order to tick those boxes off. But, there's only so much sugar you can cut out before it becomes something other than a sweet treat, eh. These were the perfect balance!
