Double Chocolate Muffins
These muffins are full of chocolate!  We don't make them a lot, but they are nice treat once in a while.  They are a favorite of many people at our house.  We made a 3x batch, which made about 4 1/2 dozen muffins.  One batch should make about 1 1/2 dozen muffins.
1/3 cup butter                                         3/4 cup buttermilk
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips             1-1/2 Tablespoons vanilla
1-2/3 cups all-purpose flour                      2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon salt                                        1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda                            1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup sour cream                                  coarse sugar

Melt 1/3 cup butter and
1 cup chocolate chips in a saucepan.
Remove from heat; cool for 10 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine
1-2/3 cups all-purpose flour, 
1 teaspoon salt, and 
1 teaspoon baking soda.
We used some whole wheat pastry flour in our muffins.

In a small bowl, stir together
1/2 cup sour cream,  
3/4 cup buttermilk, and 
1-1/2 Tablespoons vanilla
extract until sour cream is mixed in well.

Stir in 2 eggs, and 1/2 cup sugar. A small bowl didn't work so well for our 3 batches....but yes, it all fit!  it was challenging to stir though...

Add to cooled chocolate chip mixture, and mix well. Then add chocolate mixture to the flour mixture, stir just until mixed. 
 Gently stir 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips into the batter. 
 Spoon batter into greased muffin tins; each muffin cup should be 3/4 full.  Sprinkle course sugar on the top of each muffin before baking.  

Bake at 400 for 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in muffin comes out clean.  Cool for several minutes before removing muffins to a wire rack.
