Want to be healthy and naughty too? These muffins are fantastic. They are cooked in the microwave and you can cook up as many as you want--the batter keeps for several days in the refrigerator. Recipe comes from Hershey's Chocolate Treasury.

Sorry Paula, can't give a rating as I think I messed up. I think it might be because I used a silicone pan for muffins and for some reason, the muffins came out humid and kind of rubbery. Will try again in a glass or pottery dish. Sorry :(

Great muffins, I made as stated only subbed raisins for apricots, and omitted the chocolate chips completely. I also added in 1/2 teaspoon baking powder to give them just a little more volume. Thanks Paula!...Kitten:)
