Have to agree, these are delicious little treasures. Thank you for adding the note regarding the batter - thick and sticky would have had me a touch worried. Did as suggested and let the batter stand for 20 minutes before filling the muffin cups. The ingredients came together to make for a very delicious muffin just as I expected. We enjoyed - looking forward to serving to family and friends ... and the recipe made it to my 'make and take' cookbook.
These were outstanding, Heidi! I took your suggestion and let the batter stand for a while, and had no problems. I did use chopped white chocolate instead of the chips because that is what I had on hand. A lovely and very tasty holiday treat. Thnx so much for sharing your recipe. Made for PRMR Holiday Special 2009.
