    Used different ingredients. I added milk chocolate chips and used 100g melted dark chocolate. Instead of making 20 I made 12 whopper muffins. Delicious!  -  02 Dec 2010


    Really lovely recipe. I made a few minor adaptions. (Skipping the melted plain chocolate and just adding an extra 50g cocoa powder. I also changed the oil to 115g of melted butter and halved the sugar.) They still turned out fantastically chocolatey and were lovely and moist. Advice I would give to anyone wanting to make these is only mix the batter about 15 times or else you will end up with tough muffins. (I uploaded a couple of pictures of how mine turned out.)  -  15 Jun 2012
