The blend of cocoa and strawberries makes these chocolate-strawberry muffins decadent, rich and indulgent!
Valentine’s Day may not be everyone’s favorite day of the year but I do like that it’s a day when you get full permission to make someone else feel special.
Maybe you love to bake. And maybe, you have friends in your circle who absolutely love chocolate.
Bake them a dozen chocolate strawberry muffins…it’ll make their day!
As for your Valentine…
Flowers may smell nice but they don’t taste rich and decadent like these chocolaty muffins!
With that said, I will still pick up flowers for my Valentine. She is in no way demanding, but I doubt a dozen chocolate muffins would quite cut it on their own.
Consider them bonus points for your efforts!
