Double Chocolate Apricot Muffins

READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by Redsie

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!
