    Redsie's Note:

    Adapted from "125 Best Chocolate Recipes". Delicious chocolate muffins with dried apricots (you can substitute for dried cranberries or cherries) if you wish!). I replaced half of the vegetable oil by light sour cream to lighten them a bit. Makes 12 big muffins.

      What great CHOCOLATE muffins! The chopped apricots add a wonderful little fruity burst inside all that chocolate.... YUM! A reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup and forgot to sprinkle sugar on the tops, but that really doesn't make any difference. I will make these again and again... Thanks, Redsie!

      I used dried apricots. I used 3/4 cup sugar. But if I do them again, I'll reduce to 1/2 cup. Cause with the chocolate, they're very sweet. I omitted the topping. I should have removed them from the oven after 22 minutes. I was not sure if they were baked cause of the chocolate on the toothpick. So I left them 3 minutes more. It was too much. They're a bit dry. It's my fault. They have a great chocolate taste :P Thanks Redsie :) Made for market tag.

      These were so moist and chocolately. I used dried cranberries in the mix. Will use this recipe again soon.
