Double Chocolate Cherry Muffins

002

I had no idea what I was going to make when Roxana from Roxanas Home Baking announced  on our Facebook group the ingredients for this months chocolate party was cherries and chocolate. I thought about making a bar, but I had already done that. I hadn’t made muffins and I had cocoa, white chocolate and maraschino cherries in my pantry. So I decided to make some muffins.

Chocolate party is a monthly event hosted by Roxanas Home Baking together with some wonderful bloggers. Each month we pick an ingredient and pair it with chocolate. We blog about it by the end of the month.

I hope you’ll join our party and bake along with us. Also, if you’d like to know what are we up to and what ingredients we pick for the next parties, join our Facebook group.

All submitted posts will be pinned to the Chocolate party Pinterest board and will be promoted on other social media platform using the #chocolateparty hashtag.
