Muffins with ricotta and chocolate

At least for me cooking is a relaxing activity and tonight I really needed to get some of the stress out of my body. Good thing I was alone at home, I put some music on and prepared these super soft muffins. I think they are delicious! :)

This is a modified version of a recipe I got from my mom. Hope you guys will like it!
