Ever since I saw a similar recipe few months ago I was very tempted to try them myself. Finaly the time has come for them and I don't regret it, not one bit. These little muffins are just amazing, hard not to fall in love with them. Very sophisticated and the taste is beyond words. Who doesn't love chocolate in combination with cream cheese. You can also add different flavors like orange or lemon zest or different types of nuts to suit your own tastes. These muffins are just perfect to spoil yourself and your family in the morning along a good coffee.
