Back from my weird Christmas holidays and looking forward to the new year, I'm gonna share what it is going to be the last recipe of 2010.
This has been the year of experimenting and learning lots of new recipes techniques and I'm even more in love with this sweet and always tempting (and addictive) world of bakery.
The following recipe is a New Year's customized version of one of my favorites chocolate muffins. I put over the top two different decorations: powdered gold food colouring and chantilly cream.
Hope you all have an awesome New Year's Eve! May 2011 be the best year of your lives! I'll definitely work hard for making this new year unforgettable. :-)New Year's Chocolate Muffins
