Chocolate Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Muffins
6 ounces of semi sweet baking chocolate
1/3 cup of sweet cream butter
3/4 cup of milk
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1/2 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 cup of mini chocolate chips
1 cup of hazelnuts
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees
Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners
In a saucepan over low heat, melt the semisweet chocolate with butter. Let stand until cooled, about 10 minutes.
Lightly beat the egg.
In a small bowl, stir together the chocolate-butter mixture with the sugar, egg, lemon, vanilla and milk until blended well.
In a large bowl, stir together flour, soda, and salt.
Make a hole in the center of the dry ingredients so that you can pour in the chocolate mixture.
Stir until just combined. Stir in the mini chocolate chips and half of the hazelnuts. Spoon the batter into the lined muffin cups.
Top with remaining chopped hazelnuts
Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Allow muffins to rest in tins for at least 5 minutes before removing from tins to serve.
