I think people expect these to taste like cupcakes rather than muffins. They are less sweet, but that is what we liked about them. They taste like chocolate but not super sweet like cupcakes, with a surprise bit of nutella in the middle. The Nutella did sink to the bottom and ooze out in a couple so if I make these again I will try putting it on top and see what happens.
I'm sorry but these are gross. Not a good flavor of chocolate. I used really good cocoa powder, and I feel I wasted it. These did not have the texture of a muffin, but of cake. The nutella sank right to the bottom of the muffin and burned. Even my kids didn't like them, and they will usually eat any dessert type food. Sorry but yuck.
*Made for Australia/NZ Swap # 33* YUMMM! Used Ramstadt-Breda dark CocoaChobani Greek Yogurt, and Nutella ! Baked EXACTLY 15 minutes -- and they are wonderful ! The Nutella seems to ooze to the bottom of the muffin, but so What !! Thanks for posting, Jen T.
I have changed my original review to reflect the addition of icing. These muffins are really good with chocolate icing! Without the icing they don't have lots of flavor besides the Nutella. But with a nice coating of chocolate these get consumed in a hurry.
Wow!! Delicious! I did use the Nutella because we all love it ; ) But Muffins?? I think these are more like dessert, lol! Oh Well, great excuse to have your dessert for breakfast ; ) Thanks so much for this recipe Jen.
Amazingly yummy! Made this for a family gathering, and adults liked it more than children! i used unsweetened cocoa, but next time i will definitely use sweetened cocoa :)
MMMmm very yummy. Kids helped me make these, and they still turned out great ;-) . My Nutella seemed to stay put in the middle, didn't sink at all. I made them exactly to the recipe. Definitely a keeper!
MMMMMM, Nutella. Can you go wrong?
These were great tasting. I used 1/2 cup os sugar and whilst they still tasted great I think 3/4 cup will be just right or maybe some splenda to make up the rest. I am also toying with the idea of putting spoonfuls of nutella in the freezer before popping in the muffin - might stay in the centre then! Thanks
Made these to use up some Nutella I had in my cupboard... glad I choose your recipe!! These made for sinful muffins!!! Used low-fat vanilla yogurt and low-fat milk. Also used regular white sugar and used about 3/4 cup of it. Thanks Jen - this was great!! :)
