After school treat: Triple chocolate muffins recipe

I don’t know about you, but I seem have raised eating monsters since the school holidays. School makes kids hungry, apparently! Before school went back I made a whole heap of recipes up that I could freeze, so that there was always something to grab and throw into lunchboxes {I make Lulu up a lunchbox even though she doesn’t go to school, and she loves it}.

These Triple Chocolate Muffins have frozen perfectly and make the best after school treat. They’re even great served cold in this stinking heat of late. {Winter, you can come back whenever you please}.
