Chocolate Fudge Muffins

Chocolate Fudge Muffins

1 cup butter
4 ounces semisweet chocolate
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a saucepan over low heat, combine margarine and chocolate. Melt, stirring frequently, so the chocolate does not burn or stick. In a bowl, combine sugar, flour and salt. Stir in chocolate mixture. Beat eggs, then add them to batter with the vanilla. Stir until eggs are well-blended, but do not beat the mixture.

Line muffin tins with paper liners. Fill each one about two-thirds full. Bake at 300ºF for 30-40 minutes. Check to see if they are done by inserting a toothpick near the center of the muffin. If it does not come out clean, bake for another 5 minutes before removing from the pan. These taste much like brownies. Keep any leftovers in a covered container, then rewarm them.
