Double Chocolate Muffins

We are house renovators. We start with the basic recipe for renovation--and work our magic on old houses. We cook the same way. With this recipe we took a basic muffin recipe and worked with it until this chocolate lover found heaven.

In order of use:
1/3 cup sugar
4 tbsp. (2 oz.) unsalted margarine or butter
2 eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
1 tsp. Almond extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered cocoa
1/4 tsp. Salt
3 tsp. Baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1/2-3/4 cups chocolate, semi-sweet or mini chips

In the medium-size ceramic mixing bowl you intend to mix this recipe in, place sugar and
margarine/butter. Heat in the microwave about 30 sec. Or until butter is melted. Add egg and mix together thoroughly. Add extracts.
Measure dry ingredients into a sifter. Sift into wet mixture, add milk and stir until mixed. Do not over mix. Stir in chocolate chips.
Grease muffin pans with a non-stick flavorless spray. Spoon just under 1/4 cup mix into each cup, more if using large size tins.
Bake 10-15 minutes in oven. When done, a pick comes out clean and top is puffed and nearly pointed. Do not overcook.
Allow to cool slightly before removing form pan. May be cooked in cast iron mold-type pans.Serve with butter.
