Morning Muffins......2 ways

I can't believe that the school year is almost done!!  Where did the year go???  My oldest is graduating preschool and moving on to Kindergarten!  He's been telling anyone who will listen that now that he's 5 he is ready for Kindergarten.....sigh......

Today was the last day the mommies at school got together to put on an activity for the kiddos.  So we had ourselves a little luau today, complete with the hula, limbo, digging for shells, and pineapple and punch!

One of my jobs today was to provide snacks for the mommies, so I decided to try out two muffin recipes that caught my fancy.  The first one is a streusel-topped blueberry muffin from Our Best Bites.  The hubby has declared that these are one of his favorite muffins ever!  I'm a sucker for anything with a streusel-y topping.....I just love it.....but in addition these have a zing and tang from lemon zest and buttermilk.

I also needed to have some chocolate.....I always need chocolate!  The day before I needed to decide what I was making, a recipe for triple chocolate muffins showed up in my inbox from Bake at 350.  Uh, seriously?  Triple chocolate.....I am sooo in!

The triple chocolate comes from dark cocoa powder, bittersweet chocolate chips, and semisweet chocolate chips.....some serious chocolate power!

I've got to say that I really loved these....but they are really really chocolate-y.  If you aren't a chocolate lover, like the hubby.....these probably won't be your absolute favorite....but you won't be able to deny that they're pretty darn tasty.  For a chocolate love like me, these are a perfect way to start the day!!

Honestly, you could probably just dust a little powdered sugar on the top of these , or add a little whipped cream, and call them a cupcake and serve for dessert.  Does anyone know the technical different between a muffin and cupcake?  Is it just the time of day that it's served?

Well, thanks to all of the mommies that helped make this year's PVC (Parent Volunteer Club) a lot of fun!!  And if you want to check out these recipes, got to Our Best Bites and Bake at 350....and Enjoy!
