If you are addicted to dark chocolate like me, you will love these delicious cuties. I made these Paleo double chocolate muffins as a treat for my birthday two weeks ago and only had a chance to eat one, but my kids and their friends were going crazy about them. I originally wanted to make a cake with two layers and was running out of time as my kids wanted their friends to taste them. I think the idea of turning them into muffins was the best choice. Cakes are fun to make but, sometimes the decoration takes some extra effort. It takes like 25 minutes to make them including the cooking time.
