These are really good and very simple to make. The only problem I had was removing them from the muffin tins. I liberally sprayed the tins but still had hard time keeping these together even when removed 2 hours later!! Next time (and there will be a next time) I'll try paper cups. Thank you Inez. Update: I did these again but this time I used paper cups and it worked like a charm. I also omitted the choco chips. Do use paper cups. I've frozen a bunch for emergencies!!

I made these for a bake sale and they were a hit! They came out very moist and delicious. I also did another version with strawberry batter and white chocolate chips. A hit with kids and adults alike.

Excellent easy recipe...the kids loved them! Alot less messy than the frosted ones for those toddlers to eat. Thanks for a great recipe that I'm sure to try again!
