We have been having amazing weather the last few days! I usually dislike the month of March because the weather is so crappy. Not these last few days though!
To celebrate this beautiful weather, what's better than some chocolate muffins?!!
I'll use any excuse to bake some muffins!! LOL!
These are awesome and low fat too - so little butter in them!
