Peep's Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins/Cupcakes

12 Muffins/Cupcakes

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 large eggs
1 C. buttermilk (may substitute 1 C. whey)
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 3/4 C. unbleached all purpose flour
2/3 C. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups light brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk or semisweet chocolate chips

Chocolate Fudge Frosting: (Recipe below - optional)

Preheat oven to 375F.

Line a standard 12 cup cupcake/muffin pan with paper liners.
In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla extract.
In another bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
Then add the melted butter, and stir only until the ingredients are combined.
Fill the muffin cups with the batter, I use a 1/2 cup scoop/disher (the cups will be full).
Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack a for about 5 minutes before removing from pan.

Chocolate Fudge Frosting: (optional):

4 oz. unsweetened baker's chocolate, coarsely chopped
2/3 C. unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/3 C. confectioners (powdered or icing) sugar
1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Heat chocolate in large microwave safe glass bowl, microwave on high 1 minute at a time, stirring it after each minute, just till melted (be sure not to over heat* ).
Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the butter until smooth and creamy (about 1 minute). Add the sugar and beat until it is light and fluffy (about 2 minutes).
Beat in the vanilla extract.
Add the chocolate and beat on low speed until incorporated. Increase the speed to medium-high and beat until frosting is smooth and glossy (about 2 - 3 minutes).
Spread a little frosting on each muffin with a knife or offset spatula.
Dip the frosted side of muffin in flaked coconut if desired.

*Note: Be sure not to over heat or it will scorch and taste bitter. Or the oils will separate and break the chocolate.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.
