Now that the smart question is answered, lets see what we can do with the chocolate. You see, millions of people like CHOCOLATE anything chocolate. But not most of us, me included exactly know whats the percentage of cocoa in each of the chocolate types we see everyday.

Here is the glimpse:

  • Bitter Chocolate – 100 % cocoa – can only be used for baking
  • Semisweet Chocolate – 35 – 55 % cocoa – with added sugar
  • Milk Chocolate – 10% cocoa of course with milk and sugar

Everyone has different tastes and different likes. Some may like bitter and some may like milk chocolate. Two opposites of the spectrum. And someone like me is totally way outside of the spectrum liking white chocolate which is not so popular. But all in all we have chocolate in common which is what these muffins are about.

These chocolate muffins are simple, moist, vegetarian with one additional ingredient. its none other than coffee. Yes, coffee actually enhances the chocolate taste and flavor. Don’t believe it until you try it.
