Sometimes it's really nice to have rich and chocolatey breakfast on the weekend. It's like giving yourself a nice treat after a long and hectic weekday.
This muffins, like any other muffins, are pretty easy and quick to prepare in the morning. The cherry is really nice addition to it, beside most people I know always like cherry and chocolate combination. You can always substitute cherry with other summer berries if you wish to.
