These are right up my street, anything with Peanut butter and Chocolate always makes me happy. Also, the other bonus to making muffins is they are quick and easy to make.

I love the swirl at the top and the fact that the recipe also called for adding peanut butter to the batter therefore that peanut butter taste through and through!

It’s essential to use that runny type of peanut butter as the thick kind just wouldn’t be able to mix well.
