Double Chocolate Butterscotch Breakfast Muffins

These muffins freeze ridiculously well and keep for up to a week (if they don’t get devoured before then) in an airtight container.  They are heaven when paired with a tall glass of cold milk.

If you’re not big on butterscotch you could plump some dried cranberries and toss them in, or add extra chocolate chips or just omit them completely.
