Perfect Sweetness: Chocolate Chip Toffee Muffins

image

It has been very hot here lately, with temperatures hovering around mid thirties during the day and rarely sinking below twenty at night. I’ve never welcomed rain before, but this time I felt somewhat compelled to celebrate the summer rain when I heard the thunder knocking at my door.

Since good eats and drinks are mandatory with any kind of celebration, I baked a batch of chocolate chip toffee muffins to cap off our BBQ, wine and beer consumption.

These muffins turned out sweet, but I didn’t mind at all. In fact, I loved the slight crunch and sweetness of the toffee pieces so much that I ate two muffins in one sitting, and all that right after dinner. They were delicious; very satisfying.
