Chunky Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate Muffins

I usually don't make two batches of muffins so close together but this one is heading for the freezer (well there was a taste test and I may take one to work for breakfast) but the others are freezer bound.  I may have mentioned that there is a flood in our forecast.  Yes, we've been to this rodeo before and we have the big belt buckles to prove it.  I am preparing as best I can in case of power outages or bad water scenarios.  Luckily I'm in an area that is considered as high ground but everyone around me is not that fortunate.  Anyhow, back to the muffins.  I chose chunky peanut butter just for fun and luckily it works quite nicely.






Chunky Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate Muffins

1 stick butter, softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Cream together butter and brown sugar.  Stir in peanut butter.  Mix in eggs and milk and gradually add in the dry ingredients.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Grease muffin tins or use liners and fill 3/4 full.  Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes.
