Chocolate... with more chocolate!

I'm not sure why I've baked double chocolate chip muffins today.

Double chocolate chip muffins with extra chocolate icing on the top, baked in very smart paper cases (a present from Miriam... thank you!)

I think I've done it to test my will power. Did I tell you I'm trying to lose a few pounds... I've not eaten one... yet!

  1. I don't think you have to find a reason to make double chocolate muffins-they look beautiful! If you need someone to test them for you....?x

  5. I made pineapple cake. Given the general grotness outside, why on earth would anyone not want to bake today?!

    Double decadence! Why, oh why is it so difficult to lose weight? We went out to lunch today and now I just feel stuffed - I ought to go out for a run - but I wont.

  12. I meant "quiches" - must have been stupified by the thought of so much chocolate. ;)

  13. Wow they do look good! Rachel came for lunch today and brought chocolate fairy cakes for afternoon tea. Sadly I couldn't resist, well it would have been rude after her baking efforts!

  14. I cycled to rugby AND took the youngest ice skating today. Am busy wondering if that has earned me a sliver of the Marmalade cake I made on Saturday.
    I don't like this 'not just eating what you fancy' lark.

  16. Your will power is astounding. Did you lick the spoon as you made them? That does not count as eating cake if you did.

  17. hmm is that not eaten one Gina - meaning I've actually eaten three ??
    Well done for having restraint !
    And is is really double or quadruple chocolate chip if you have cocoa in it and then icing too - sounds even more decadant
