Double Chocolate Cherry Muffins with White Chocolate Drizzle

There was a bowl of fresh cherries sitting in the fridge, and I knew I had to use them asap.

Whatever I was going to make, I knew I’d have to remove the pits . . . without a cherry pitter.

Well, I got it done, eventually.IMG_2533

I decided to try to make chocolate cherry muffins.  Christine was always a huge fan of chocolate cherry bread when we were growing up, so I thought it would be nice to recreate it in a more accessible form (as in not a huge loaf).  I used this recipe from All Recipes.  The priority in finding a recipe was that it would use fresh cherries instead of dried cherries.  Also, the recipe called for sour cream, but I didn’t have any so I had to substitute with a mix of yogurt and baking soda.

I also thought it would be nice to add a white chocolate finish on top.  I just melted some white chocolate in the microwave and drizzled it on top.
