These little cuties are going to be your latest snack obsession! They are gooey, chocolate filled bites of deliciousness that hold a hint of orange flavor. They kind of remind of of those chocolate oranges you get around the holiday season but way less intense.
Am I the only one that thinks they’re intense? Because THEY ARE. The best part about them was being able to crack them open but after that they’re joy was short lasted. Maybe I’m being a little harsh? I don’t know. I’m only seeing heart eyes for these Orange Chocolate Muffins.
I used one of my favorite chocolate brands to get the orange flavor. Theo Chocolate has SO many amazing flavors and combos. I couldn’t help myself and had to use my latest obsession! The Orange Chocolate bar gives these muffins a special twist. So many different bars would be great in these muffins as well. The Turmeric Spice, Cherry Almond, Ginger, and the Black Rice Quinoa Crunch are all going to happen in my life as soon as I can get my hands on them.
For now I’ll
settle LIVE for these muffins!
