Double Chocolate Muffins with Banana Cream

Double Chocolate Muffin with Banana Cream

I decided to make February muffin month.  For no other reason except for another excuse to turn on the oven and heat up the house.  Between stormageddon and poler vortexs I am so tired of this winter. I’m not a fan on the best of days but this one seems to be going on, and on, and on.  Maybe it’s because I’m working full time at my day job and have to go out in it every day. It could be because this is our second winter in a house where shoveling is a necessity.  Whatever the reason I just want it to end and now. Bring on Spring!

Double Chocolate Muffin with Banana Cream

Anyone feel the same way?

Hopefully these and the next three weeks of muffins will help.
