Hazelnut and Coconut Chocolate Muffins

Chocolate muffins are one of my top favorite desserts to make when I don’t have a lot of time. It’s quick and easy, and always a good idea for hosting or as a sweet treat next to a coffee cup.

These chocolate muffins combine also coconut and hazelnuts with a shiny chocolate frosting, and are so delicious and all-time favorites.
