Excellent muffins. I didn't have semi-sweet mini chips so used cinnamon mini chips. Turned out great. Loved the crispy crust but soft inside.

These are great! I reduced the morsels to 1/2 cup, keeping all other ingredients as listed, and check it out - I got 12 regular sized muffins plus 9 minis! That's a great return for an easy mix muffin recipe! They taste richly dark, not too sweet, and will give me that hit of dark chocolate late in the day without breaking the calorie bank. Thanks for a winner!

These are divine! I doubled the amount of cinnamon and used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa. I loved that these are not overly sweet. Rather, they are dense, dark and chocolatey with just a slight sweet taste. Like a muffin, and not a chocolate cupcake, which is exactly what I was hoping for. These also have a gorgeous texture and freeze well.
