    These chocolate muffins were delicious. Not too 'heavy' on the chocolate and sugar, just very good!  -  14 Feb 2010


    I made these muffins today and they turned out ok, but the mixture was a little runny so will try reducing the milk and increasing the flour a little next time.  -  19 Apr 2009


    Loved this recipe, only changes I made was more nuts and less choc chips. Oh i also used low cal sugar as I'm dieting and I used them as a treat - yum yum!  -  21 Aug 2012
