Chocolate Craving Dessert Muffins

Sometimes you just need chocolate, I mean NEED! like nothing will make me feel better then a mouth full of rich deep dark chocolate deliciousness.  It's usually once a month or more depending on the Tomato Snob at hand. This recipe is still being perfected but many agree it's a satisfying solution to dessert or breakfast depending on what time of day the craving strikes. I've made these muffins with a combination of buckwheat flour  and matzo meal  you can substitute the matzo meal for any whole wheat flour I'm just trying to use up what I have left over from passover.
