Bakery Style Double Chocolate Muffins: rich, moist chocolate muffins with dark chocolate acai and blueberry! #chocolatemuffins #copycat @brookside_choc

I forgot to mention in that title that I have a fun giveaway for you all today! Courtesy of Brookside Chocolate!

I was recently sent one of the most beautiful, thoughtful packages from Brookside Chocolate. They had reached out to me asking if I’d like to give their chocolates a try. Seriously. Who says no to chocolate?

Bakery Style Double Chocolate Muffins: rich, moist chocolate muffins with dark chocolate acai and blueberry! #chocolatemuffins #copycat @brookside_choc

What I didn’t expect is this lovely package that arrived at my door. Filled with items that I personally “liked” on pinterest! They went on pinterest to find products I love! How thoughtful, right??? (below is a picture of the gift I received…find out what yours will include….)

The bags of chocolate were delicious! Easy to eat on the go snacks, and my family is always on the go! My favorites were the Pomegranate, but I think it’s only because I can’t seem to take in enough pomegranates these days. And I didn’t have to take the seeds out of the fruit. Brookside took care of that for me, and then covered them in chocolate. Nice, right?

Anyways, YOU all are going to get the opportunity to win a prize package from Brookside Chocolate too!

This New Year for me has been about balance. Balancing healthy eating, exercise, and my love for food! Brookside will provide ONE tasting kit to the lucky winner and it will include the following: (APPROX. VALUE: $80)- be sure to enter Rafflecopter at bottom of page!

I think that sounds wonderful. If you haven’t already tried their chocolate, let me be the first to tell you how good they are. And these muffins have a sweet surprise in them. I used the Dark Chocolate Acai with Blueberry in addition to milk chocolate chips to sweeten them up. I also baked them up in my jumbo muffin pan, so they are just like those big bakery style muffins you find in the stores!

  1. I never say no to chocolate…especially when it starts off my day!!! What yummy looking muffins!!!

    I have been trying to eat a better balanced diet and working out at the gym on a more regular basis!!!

  2. Wendy Jorgensen

    Everyone already knows that Dark Chocolate has great health benefits, but Brookside Chocolate takes first place in good taste! My New Year has seen some changes in diet, like eating more salad and smaller portions of food.

  3. Who can say no to chocolate in form of this huge muffin? Especially the mini morsels sell it to me 😉
    Not a US citizen but the gift package looks awesome!

  4. Jeffrey

    I maintain a balance by running marathons so I can eat whatever the heck I want. Its a small price to pay but what can I say, I LOVE SWEETS!

  5. Tracey Vianden

    I try to find balance by walking each day on the treadmill before leaving for work. I love chocolate and can’t wait try these muffins.

  6. I’m trying to find balance in my life by actually taking some time for myself at a workout class. I work fulltime, so it’s hard to take more time away from my daughter, but it’s oh so good for me!

    Thanks for this fantastic looking muffin recipe, and for the chance to win!

  7. sue

    I am trying to find balance by spending more time for me, exercising, and trying to eat better:)

  8. Marilyn

    Thanks for this recipe…they sound amazing! Cant wait to try them….thanks, too, for the opportunity to win!

  9. Amy Reed

    I’ve been working on making sure I start the day with a healthy breakfast and eat more fruits and veggies. I also now take a calcium and vitamin d supplement to keep my bones strong. Plus having a new puppy, I am doing A LOT more walking – 5 miles every day!

    I also try to keep the mindset that age is just a number!

  10. Jessica

    I’m trying to balance my work and fun better this year! Usually I sacrifice everything for work and school but I’m making more time for my family and friends this year!

  11. Tracy

    Yay!!!! I love breakfast!!

  12. I only eat a little bit of what I bake and give the rest away. That way I am not tempted. I also skate three times a week. That is how I try to stay balanced.

  13. Double chocolate muffins…can’t go wrong with that! To bad you didn’t live closer because I could help you with all your leftovers!

  14. don’t deny myself chocolate, just limit it and try to increase my activity when I do indulge

  15. I am 33 weeks pregnant with a 2 year old. The only way to get balance is to sit on my butt and relax while he naps (which I am doing now).

  16. What a lovely (and thoughtful) gift! I have to admit to doing the same thing for my sister this year! Thankyou, Pinterest.

  17. My mouth is drooling while looking at this post! AMAZING! 🙂

  18. Dawna

    The cranberry/orange muffin tops look totally delish so I’ve bookmarked them for later. Right now, I’m getting ready to try my hand at a couple of new Rice Krispie treat recipes…you’re such a baaaaaaad (but oh so good) influence Aimee. =)

  19. karen

    Balance in my life. That is not as easy as most people think. I have been trying to eat a more balanced diet–hard to do when I would rather eat a cupcake for breakfast then oatmeal.

  20. Kristen

    I am trying to eat more chocolate to balance my life!

  21. I need chocolate muffins for breakfast, methinks. That’s good balance, right? Chocolate for all three meals and dessert?

    Seriously, what the heck is balance, lol.

  22. Can never get enough chocolate! 🙂

  23. Holly B

    I’m trying really hard to be aware of my tv/ computer time and cut it down quite a bit so I have a healthier balance. Its so easy for me to get sucked in and lose track of time!

  24. With a sweet tooth like mine, it is definitely hard to find balance! As a college student, it can be hard to stay healthy. I joined a local gym (not the school’s) so that I can workout early in the morning before classes! I have been trying to eat lots more fresh vegetables and trying hard to cut back my caffeine intake!

  25. Jessie C.

    Yoga helps me to balance my life

  26. Kimberly H

    We are trying to eat more fruits and veggies and walk more.

  27. Debbie Bray

    trying to prioritize

  28. Sallie

    I’ve started working out 3-4x week at a great bootcamp class – it’s definitely helping me manage stress and lose some weight!

  29. Renee

    I can’t wait to make this, love me some chocolate but will be trying your vanilla bean cupcakes first for a baby shower.

  30. To find balance, I do everything one step at a time. Finish what I started and move on to the next. I always, no matter what find at least 20 minutes to exercise everyday and for treats, no treat is off, just have what you like in moderation!

  31. Linda

    Chocolate (muffins) for breakfast…..there’s nothing better!

  32. Tasha N.

    Balance? What’s that? The only thing I try to balance is keeping 3 kids and a husband happy! And Chocolate always helps with that!

  33. Jody Robinson

    I am currently on dialysis and limited to snacks, so when I treat myself I grab a snack which includes Brookside Dark Chocolate Pomegranate!

  34. Those muffins look amazing, Aimee! YUM! I’m trying to balance work and home life… never enough hours in the day it seems! Thanks for the awesome giveaway and recipe!

    Love Always,

  35. Roma

    You had me at “chocolate”!

  36. Charlotte Moore

    I try to use coconut oil and whole wheat flour when I can. I also use butter and not margarine anymore.

    My hubby would love this chocolate. I have never heard of this brand.

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  37. Donna Ingalls

    To have balance in my life must include time for me to regroup at night. I make it a point to shut off all electronics, relax and read in bed. I do this 1/2 hour before I got to bed and it gives me time to debrief and get it together. Shutting off my electronics was difficult for me at first, but it really works and relaxes me.

  38. Terry O

    I am working on balancing my life by getting up a little earlier in the morning. Sometimes I exercise, sometimes I just have quiet time for me before my son wakes up. It helps me focus before the rest of the day goes by in a blur!! 🙂

  39. I stay balanced with a great workout routine throughout the week and not stressing out over eating the foods that I love. If I want something, I’ll have it! Just might mean I have to put in a little extra time at the gym 🙂

  40. Laura D

    Oh those look delicious!!! I must make these!

  41. Heather

    Balance? We are supposed to be balanced? I try to be as organized as I can. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Muffins look so delicious!

  42. Krista E.

    It’s a day-to-day thing for me. Try to stay organized and make sure there is at least one night a week we don’t have any activities.

  43. sandy

    I love all your recipes and contests!! However, I don’t think it s fair if the winners are based on being able to say they follow you in all ways. I follow on facebook but I do not use twitter, so winners should be picked from anyone that follows you even if only in one way. Thanks for all your ideas and recipes. I especially like todays muffin tops. Also, I LOVE choclate and the dark choc pomegranates are my families favorite!

    • Hi Sandy, you don’t have to follow all ways to be entered. I will double check the rafflecopter to make sure it’s clear. Just by leaving a comment on this blog post enters you in the giveaway. Following me and Brookside the other ways are more opportunities for entry! Good luck and I’m so glad to have you as a follower 🙂

  44. I’m trying to eat better all around. I tend to skip breakfast. I should eat some jumbo muffins (if only I had these now)! I love, love, love those blueberries!!!

  45. Anne

    To find balance, I’m trying to get outside more. Even a short walk with the dog can turn my day right around.

  46. I just had some Blueberry Cheese cake muffins (not from scratch….shame on me) this a.m. and I’m pretty sure these chocolate muffins would have tasted much better! I want one…like now!

  47. What a wonderful giveaway–I want to try that chocolate! Looks delicious. I am trying to have balance in my life by setting aside at least one night a week for “me” time. So that can be reading, yoga, cooking, watching a movie, ect. Life gets crazy and I must admit there really isn’t a lot of time for me to focus on bettering myself or just giving myself to enjoy the small things and not worry about the daily grind!

  48. Ummehaani

    Love ur muffin recipes 🙂
    Thanks soo much

  49. Ummehaani

    I try to keep balance in my life by setting aside scheduled times for important things like time with my family n date nights with my husband 🙂

  50. Balance…? I gotta figure that one out once baby comes. It’s always hard getting it back after having a baby. Probably wouldn’t hurt to include chocolate in the balance of things though, right?

  51. DebbieD

    Chocolate is my best friend… We have to have some chocolate at least once a day! Would love to be entered for the drawing…

  52. Miss Violet Love

    Moderation keeps my life pretty balanced. I can’t cut out everything, other wise I’d just crack!

  53. Sherri

    I am trying to make myself eat some kind of breakfast every day and adding chocolate to muffins sounds yummy and much easier to make myself since I don’t really like eat breakfast foods.

  54. Charlene Glover

    trying to eat better and exercise

  55. I’m ready to break through my computer screen and reach for one of these guys. Yum!

  56. Shelly

    I’ve been watching what I eat and exercising 6 days a week.

  57. Kristen M.

    Chocolate for breakfast, yes please! Great looking muffins.

  58. Chocolate muffins are how you should start every morning! Plus they do have Acai berries in them so that amps up the health factor.

  59. These look amazing! I love any excuse to have chocolate for breakfast. Can’t wait to make these!

  60. Kristin

    I try to find balance by taking at least an hour of “me time” every day where I read or take a nap…whichever I need more…

  61. Armindy M

    I find balance by making daily to-do lists and sticking to them. Otherwise, I’ll find myself under a pile of blankets with a pack of oreos in my hand, watching a 4-day marathon of Grey’s on Netflix.

  62. Kirra Branch

    Chocolate Muffins!! I couldn’t think of a better way to start of my day. They look absolutely delicious. 🙂 I’m trying to balance my life with exercising and only having one small treat a day. 🙂
    Also, thanks for the opportunity to win some amazing chocolate.

  63. Cynthia L.

    I’m trying to be balanced by distressing more and finding some me time! Have to take care of me first before taking care of everyone else.

  64. Carrie M

    Eating better and not slipping and breaking my d*** arm.

  65. Kristina C

    I try to find balance by going for walks with my little ones – when I am pushing them in the double stroller they enjoy the scenery and I enjoy the opportunity to have a little “me” thinking time!

  66. Ashley

    Eating good food. Yummy food that is nourishing.

  67. Balance for me is running 3 miles so I can eat a brownie 🙂 Or eating cereal for dinner because I want dessert. Not sure it is advised, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do!

  68. Kathy

    Love muffins! And chocolate ones are my kids’ favorite so I gotta try these!

  69. Skylar S

    Eating healthier and spending more time with family.

  70. I’m a student, so I’m working very hard to balance my academics with my social life (:

  71. Marjorie Nath

    I haven’t had good chocolate in over 3 years. Their chocolate looks fantastic especially to a chocoholic. Thank you for a chance at this great giveaway.

  72. Sara L.

    I have been trying to eat smarter and work out more. Boring, but true.

  73. rachel

    By eating more salad!!

  74. My Grandma had a heart attack the day after Christmas & thankfully she is okay, but she has been healthy her entire 83 years. As I am her next of kin, I’ve had to take care of alot of health & financial business for her. One of her requirements was to start walking to help her heart. I too have done the same. Along with her & my oldest daughter running her first TinkerBell Half Marathon, I’ve been inspired by both! This is a whole new year, a better year than last & I want to start it off right. I’ve completed my first 5K & continue to train so I too may complete my first Half!

  75. Gorgeous muffins and I must find some of that chocolate!

  76. Ttrockwood

    I am trying to create balance by scheduling in gym classes, preparing my own healthy meals and prioritizing friends and family over my crazy stressful job

  77. Kim Catapano

    Balancing things in my life such as eating healthy, exercising, keeping my mind sharp and myself stress free as much as possible is something I work at everyday and find that focusing is an important aspect in achieving that balance.

  78. Amelia

    Great recipe and great giveaway!

  79. meredith

    I try to take some time each day to focus on important things so I can not worry about the small stuff – thats important so i can have balance


    I am trying to think about the food choices I make and those for my family

  81. Margot C

    I do yoga, I ride my bike – I eat dark chocolate.

  82. Pauline Gudas

    I absolutely love chocolate. The dark chocolate is bt fat my favorite. Can’t wait to try this recipe

  83. Doreen

    Trying to incorporate less starches/carbs, and add more veggies.

  84. Dawn

    Balance?! With all the running around I do with 3 kids all in activities I am lucky if I remember to eat 🙂 I guess mostly we have good food with “treats” in moderation…I could really use to exercise more.

  85. Summer Blizzard

    My son said that i absolutely have to make the double chocolate cupcakes. They look really good. Thanks for sharing.

  86. I live balanced by enjoying treats and not feeling guilty about it!

  87. Denise O

    Like most, I struggle with balance on a daily basis. I think throughout the week I do a decent job, but only because I make the time on the weekends to shop & line up healthy meals for the week. Sometimes everything goes out the window & it’s soup/sandwich for dinner. But at east it’s better than the fast food it would have been before….

  88. You could certainly see your expertise within the work you write.

  89. Divya

    This isn’t just a double chocolate. This is a chocolate muffin to the sixth power with all these chocolate items in it :::)))
