Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins

Chocolate and Peanut Butter is obviously a classic combination.  Usually you see it in desserts, but why not have it for breakfast?  I saw this recipe over at The Kitchenarian for her Muffin Monday series.  I knew I had to make them.  Muffins are always a hit here, chocolate and peanut butter is always a hit here, so I knew these muffins would be great.  And they were!

Sorry for the lack of chit chat today.  I have a bad cold.  As luck would have it my 6 year old left today to spend 4 days with his Grandparents.  I had big plans for stuff to get done around the house, but so far nothing.  No energy.  Hoping this cold goes away FAST!!
