I told you I was going try making a muffin inspired by Starbuck's Dark Cherry Mocha.
Dark Cherry Mocha Muffins
2 cups flour
3/4-cup Ghirardelli Sweet Ground Chocolate
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1- 21 oz. can of cherry pie filling
½ cup espresso
6 tbsp canola oil
1 bag chocolate chips (oh, yah)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin tins or use paper liners 2- 12 muffin pans (may not make quite 24 but mine made over 12). Sift together all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Make a well and add beaten eggs, espresso, oil and cherries; stir until moistened; then add chocolate chips. Do not over stir or the cherries will pop. Spoon batter into muffin tins and bake around 20 minutes or until risen and firm with a bounce. Let cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
