Chocolate Cherry Muffins

No special occassion for the baking. My husband left for a month overseas so I wanted to console myself with something delicious. This is a recipe my mom used to make. I remember hers being oversized, stuffed with chocolate and deliciously cherry. I made mine a bit smaller and just as delicious.

Chocolate Cherry Muffins
*You can add more chocolate or cherries depending on your taste

2 c. flour
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. milk chocolate chips
1 c. maraschino cherries (chopped in quarters)
3/4 c. milk
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1 egg
2 tbsp. maraschino cherry juice

Preheat oven to 375. Mix all dry ingredients together including the chocolate chips and cherry pieces. You want to coat the chocolate and cherries in the flour mixture so they evenly disperse in the batter. In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients: milk, vegetable oil, egg, and cherry juice. Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir to combine. Pour evenly in 24 cupcake liners and bake 18-20 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
