This recipe is an old-time favorite that I've modified over the years depending on whether I served them for breakfast, a snack or as dessert. I love chocolate in any form, and these muffins pair it with coconut for a yummy result. -Carol Wilson, Rio Rancho, New Mexico

"The picture looks wonderful and I followed the recipe exactly as written but the outcome was disappointing: bland, dry, almost flavorless - even with the pocket of coconut. So sorry, but I would not make this one again."
