Take one bite and you'll see why I think these rich, tender muffins are the best I've ever tasted. Mint chocolate chips make them a big hit with my family and friends. —Stephanie Moon, Boise, Idaho

"Gorgeous recipe. My one addition was a squeeze of lemon and some lemon zest. I used chocolate chunks. This is an excellent basic muffin recipe where you can substitute the chips for your item of choice. Let's face it: Is there anything better in baked goods than sour cream (and lemon zest!)?"

"This is an excellent breakfast muffin that is moist and flavorful. I made them for my chocoholic daughter and her friend on Saturday morning. They both loved them. Then I took the leftovers to my adult Sunday School class where they were equally well received. Only change made was to use mini semi-sweet chips because I had them open and on hand. The mini size means each bite has some chocolate in it. Thanks for a great recipe."

"I made these with whole wheat pastry flour, greek non fat plain yogurt instead of sour cream for extra protein and half the calories. I also omitted the butter and used canola oil. They were so moist. I took them to work for a birthday and only had a few left."
