I followed recipe as is and needed more sugar. It lacked flavor.

This recipe is amazing. I also used dark chocolate powder and I used buttermilk instead of milk. Next time I will use coffee instead of water.

Substitute the water for Coffee! Brings out the chocolate flavour so much better!

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.

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.

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

My first attempt at muffins from "scratch". Made with "Special Dark" cocoa. Easy to make and fantastic moist, great tasting muffins. This is a keeper!
