Ready for a new Cookalong subject?

Terri_pacnw has picked chocolate!

I'm ready and already into it, just the thought of chocolate can put a smile on my face.

I also have an idea for some fun!

If everyone could try to post their favorite, T+T chocolate recipes by Sunday Sept 12, I think it would be fun to make a recipe that has been submitted during the next week. Do a little post on this thread about it the recipe you choose, during that week after.

A picture of the final product would be great but not necessary.

So it would go like this....

Aug 30 - Sept 12 post recipes using chocolate Sept 13-19 make one of those recipes and do a little post about the recipe.

No rules other than our standard T+T rule for posted recipes. You don't have to post a recipe to join in the fun of making one that has been posted that last week..... just join in and reap the benefits of making something yummy!

That's what cooking and baking is all about.

This recipe immediately comes to mind right now, because raspberries are in season. These are awesome with morning coffee. Here's to you Marlen!!

Marlen's Raspberry Love Muffins

2 cups flour (I use half whole wheat pastry flour) 2 tsp. baking powder 1 heaping cup white chocolate chips (I use semi-sweet dark ones, Hershey's brand) 1 stick softened butter (that's 1/2 cups) 3/4 cup sugar (I often use 2/3 cup instead) 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract 1 TBLSP grated orange zest 1/2 cup milk (I use lowfat, and have used soy) 2 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries. (Could use blackberries too)

Sift flour with baking powder and mix in the chocolate chips; set aside. With an electric mixer (or your own arm power and a wooden spoon, lol!), beat softened butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and orange zest. Mix in dry ingredients in two additions, alternating with the milk. Fold in raspberries as gently as possible. Do not overmix.

Spoon into greased muffin tins and bake at 375 degrees F, for 25-30 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from tins. If you can stand to wait ten minutes.

Makes I think one dozen. I use a cookie scoop to put the batter in the muffin cups, sure makes it easier.
