Sometimes I try to justify eating chocolate for breakfast. These Cherry Chocolate Muffins do have some fruit in them (thank heavens), so you can feel a little less guilty about eating a few for breakfast.
They are sure to please your breakfast guests (and your family too).
I will even make these for snacks, breakfast, side dishes, and dessert. They go with just about everything, and are a hit every time.
When I make them for breakfast, I love to serve them with our Homemade Apple Cider.
These Cherry Chocolate Muffins only take a few minutes to throw together, and taste delicious. You need to try these.

What cherries could I use for this recipe?
I don’t know if I’m very familiar with my cherries all that well, but I will recommend a few that I have become familiar with, and have preferred using when I make my Cherry Chocolate
-Dried Cherries are a great alternative for this recipe. They will be a little more chewy in your muffins, but work just as great.
-Dark Sweet Frozen Cherries would also work. We recommend thawing them before putting them in your muffins, or else they will make your muffins soggy.
-Fresh Dark Sweet Cherries. These are my personal favorite to use with these muffins. They are so sweet and delicious. You are going to love them with your chocolate muffins.
