Certainly, I would have added currants, if I'd had them. They are a much better addition than raisins, to my mind. There was a box in the pantry, to be sure, but upon opening it, I discovered about one tablespoon of currants. Not enough to consider using.
I debated the pros and cons of various items in the pantry, then noticed a large milk chocolate bar from TJ's that was begging to be used. So, I carved off a largish pile of milk chocolate shavings to add to the muffins.
We thought it was the perfect combination with the orange juice (from Cara Cara and Blood Oranges) and the lime juice (no ripe lemons yet, only limes).
I should report that we liked these best on the second day. The citrus and chocolate flavors had mellowed quite a bit, making a mighty fine-tasting muffin.
This week's hostess was Lauryn of Bella Baker.
