Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine the mayonnaise, orange peel and vanilla; gradually add orange juice until blended. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips (batter will be thick). Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full.
  2. Bake at 350° for 18-23 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

Made these for PAC 2006. Sorry, can't rate this recipe. Tried them, the taste was good, but they didn't rise and they were very dense. I was surprised that there were no eggs in this recipe. Maybe that's why they were so dense? Thanks!
