I think we have been over this before, but I will refresh your memory.  I am a huge fan of chocolate and peanut butter.   If you have read my blog ever before, you probably know this about me.  So it shouldn’t surprise you that I have yet another version of a muffin with chocolate and peanut butter.  I had been eying the Cooking Light Triple Chocolate Muffin for awhile, but then Lauren made a version with chocolate peanut butter.  I had to make them right away.

Double Chocolate Peanut Buttet Swirl Muffins

My 6 year old loved these.  But for once, I think I liked them more.  I froze what we didn’t eat the first morning right away.  I lived on these for days!  Usually I leave the frozen muffins as treats for my 6 year old, but not these!  I need to make more so he has a chance to have them.

I've never thought to freeze muffins before! I've always just used the whole fresh is better thing as an excuse to polish off the batch in one day! These would not last long in my house...

These are so pretty, and perfect for National Peanut Butter Day :) Knowing myself, I would probably eat these with another dollop of peanut butter on top. Just out of curiosity, what does the red wine vinegar do?

I think the vinegar just adds a little bit of acidity like buttermilk would do in a muffin. You definitely can't taste it, it just works :)
