Oh yeah you read that right, Turtle Muffins. Remember a few weeks ago when I shared these decadent brownie muffins, well today’s recipe is a close cousin and equally as delicious! I’ve been keeping a secret from you all and today seemed like the perfect time to share, or at least to explain my obsession with certain foods lately. They’re cravings, sometimes, I’m happy to announce that we are expecting baby #2 this summer, I am comfortably in the second trimester and enjoying eating most of my favorite foods again.
I had some pesky “evening-sickness” this pregnancy and unfortunately didn’t cook dinner most nights for about 6-7 weeks. Happy was the day and the weeks continuing afterwards when I finally started to feel like myself again, aside from a healthy baby all I wanted for Christmas was to WANT to eat chocolate again.
I think most women can understand this, or maybe even empathize. So hopefully that explains why today I am sharing yet another, almost dessert like muffin with you all. These turned out as good, if not better than I had imagined they would. Last week I was seriously craving caramel for the second week in a row. I have been trying to exercise and not eat too much junk so I don’t gain any extra baby weight that may be harder to lose this time around – but I couldn’t resist this craving any longer. So I whipped together these amazing, deliciously, moist chocolate muffins and proceeded to eat two, okay maybe… three but hey who’s counting? If you love turtle candy and muffins, then you owe it to yourself to give these a try; enjoy and happy baking!
