So, here we go.
My Tommy has an interview tomorrow, praise God! In hopes of having him well nourished and happy for his interview I started to make some fun chocolate muffins to have ready for breakfast.

In the interest of full disclosure, I must also admit that while I was waiting for the pictures to load I smeared a bit of peanut butter on the top of one of those muffins rather icing to cupcake like, and boy did they play friendly together!
