Reviews forCocoa Macaroon Muffins
"I liked the flavorful center of these muffins. These also work for a dessert. I use dutch process cocoa here!!"
"there has to be something missing from this recipe. needs more sugar or something the muffin is terrible."
"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."
