I will probably never make these muffins again. It's so rare that I am disappointed in taste of home recipes! My daughter loves orange and chocolate together so I thought these sounded great! I didn't realize until I went to make these that the chocolate needed to be grated. What a lot of work! Also, I could not taste the chocolate in the muffins. They were nice and moist and still tasted pretty good, just not what I expected. They were a light color with chocolate specks. I would really love a dark chocolate muffin with orange more. Maybe I will combine the "white chocolate chip muffins" recipe with this one.
