Rich Chocolate Muffins

Yields about 20 medium muffins.

10 oz. bittersweet chocolate
8 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1-1/4 lb. (2-1/2 cups) unsalted butter
1 lb. (3-1/2 cups) all-purpose flour
4-1/2 cups sugar
12 eggs, cracked into a bowl

In a saucepan, melt the two chocolates with the butter. Cool slightly.

In a large bowl, mix the flour and sugar. Whisk the eggs into the dry ingredients.

Pour the chocolate into the egg mixture and stir until well blended; chill at least 3 hours. Heat the oven to 350°F. Line a muffin tin with muffin papers.

Scoop about 1/2 cup batter into each tin so that the curve of the batter is even with the rim of the cup (refrigerate extra batter in an airtight container for up to a week).

Bake the muffins until the tops puff and crackle and are slightly soft to the touch, and a toothpick stuck in the center has moist but not wet crumbs clinging to it, about 30 min.
