Peanut Butter and Chocolate Muffins

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Muffins 5

So this time, since I’m on a roll with muffins right now, I wanted to do something that is not only a candy (I’m looking at you Reese’s cups) but also a favorite in just about any other form.  See, I really love chocolate but my second love (and perhaps even a tie) is peanut butter.  I have to say, when I was younger (and even occasionally now) I couldn’t get enough of peanut butter.  It just had the right amount of salty flavor and when you got the chunky peanut butter and combined with fluff, oh!  There was nothing like it!
