Muffin Monday: Rocky Road Muffins

It's Monday again and I have another great muffin recipe brought to you from Baker Street. As a kid, I was not a huge chocolate fan and never tried anything with Rocky Road in the title. Looking back, I really missed out on great flavours, chocolate with gooey marshmallows and nuts. It's a great combination that just works! I think I see some rocky road inspired recipes in my future. Now these muffins, might not be the healthiest but they are a great indulgence to brighten my Monday Morning.
