MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2013

Just made these fabulous muffins. I used yogurt instead of sour cream; milk choc chips instead of semi-sweet. They are decadent and so moist!

Very good recipe! I used dark chocolate cocoa instead, only because I like dark chocolate. They came out moist like cupcakes -- yum!

Muffins were a huge hit! One of my daughters has a lactose intolerance so I substituted lactose free milk and mayonnaise (also lactose free) for the sour cream. They were perfect and quick to satisfy a chocolate craving for two girls. FYI for anyone else out there with lactose issues. We use Ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate chips; lactose free as well.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2011

I didn't have sour cream so I used applesauce like it said in the description. I also didn't have any chocolate chips. They still turned out great! They make great mini-muffins too... bake for 12-14 minutes.

MY REVIEW

These are moist, and the chocolate flavor is not overpowering. I added a mixture of chocolate and peanut butter chips.
