"My teenaged son and his friends rave over these muffins. They request it every time they have a sleepover. I also add 3T expresso powder to the dry ingredients to intensify the chocolate flavor."
"Muffins tasted much better once they cooled. I would now give them 4 stars."
"I liked the cream filling, but the vinegar gave the chocolate part a peculiar burnt taste."
