Who doesn't love chocolate covered strawberries? That combo is a match made in heaven, and so I decided to use that idea to make these moist muffins. 

These adorable pink treats are sure to be a hit with the kids with their pretty pink color and bits of chocolate. When I was growing up I used to love when my mom would make muffins, I could smell them baking even before I came downstairs, and it was just always a special treat.

As tempting as it is to use the muffin mixes, I think you will be surprised at how easy and quick making them from scratch really is. There is no mixer required for these muffins, and the best part is, I get to control what goes into them.

By using the strawberry Greek yogurt, you can leave out some of the oil or butter in most recipes while getting a more intense strawberry flavor.

These would make a delicious after school snack, on the go breakfast, or light dessert.
