Happy Valentine's Day - Chocolate Chip Raspberry Muffins

I thought I should make something pink and chocolatey for Valentine's Day, so after looking over a couple of recipes, I decided on these chocolate chip raspberry muffins. I made them last night using this recipe from Taste of Home for the basic muffin, then loaded them up with frozen raspberries and mini chocolate chips. They were the perfect sweet treat for today, and went over well among my friends and family.
