!to make the muffins:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease or spray with baking spray.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar). Set aside.
  4. In another mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Add the chocolate chips. Stir all together with a wooden spoon. Batter should be lumpy. Do not overmix!
  6. Scoop the batter into the muffin tin with a regular ice cream scoop (one scoop per muffin cup).
  7. Place the muffin pan in the oven and increase the temperature to 400 degrees F.
  8. Bake the muffins for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of each muffin comes out clean and the tops are cracked.
  9. Remove the muffin pan from the oven and carefully turn the muffins on their side or invert them onto a cutting board or plate. (This is to let the steam out and prevent soggy bottoms.)
  10. Let the muffins cool completely before glazing.

!to make the glaze:

  1. Place the peanut butter in a microwave safe dish and microwave for 10 to 15 seconds or until liquid. Stir up and drizzle over the cooled muffins.
