These muffins really surprised me. I whipped them up when I needed something chocolately for a friend. I expected them to be a chocolate version of the classic bread, but they came out quite different – very fluffy and light. The slight sourness of the starter played off the chocolate so well.
I used dark chocolate chips in these, but I think regular chocolate chips and peanut butter chips would also work well.
