With my package of biscotti safely transported a couple hundred miles away, my hyperactive mind was so relieved, I completely put the notion of a "swap" behind me. And then, just the other day, the most wonderful surprise awaited me in the mailbox.
Amanda had informed me that ontop of being swamped as any active student is at this time of year, she was somehow having trouble with all of her baking ventures. That was just fine, I completely understand the struggle of balancing a busy schedule, so I hadn't expected anything for quite some time. You under-estimate yourself, hun!
On top of the amazing speed at which these goodies were rushed to my door, I was completely taken with the fantastic taste. No matter the occasion or destination, you just can't go wrong with muffins, or chocolate! And on top of all that, she even included the most adorable little recipe card I have ever seen. Honestly, all of the hard work was clearly put into that, it nearly moved me to tears. It isn't often that I receive things, and certainly never so thoughtful. Thank you so, so, so much!
Unassuming and simple in appearance from the outside, but just crack open the fluffy exterior of one of these diamonds and you'll discover a treasure trove of hidden chocolate! Ah, I felt so guilty to have indulged in these delights for breakfast, but oh so good.
I love muffins of all sorts, but I would have honestly never thought with chocolate chip crumb muffins! I don't know why, I just always think of spice and coffee cakes when I imagine crumb toppings. I really can't say it enough: These were such a treat, I really hope we can arrange more swaps in the not-too-distant future! Thank you!!
