This recipe goes back to when my son was small and that is quite a while back, and I still make them, these are moist and rich no need for an electric mixer for this recipe it's all mixed with a wooden spoon, I have even added in chopped walnuts or mini chocolate chips, my Kittencal's Chocolate Frosting/Icing works great with these :)

Very chocolatey. However, mine came out REALLY dense. I'm not quite sure where I might have gone wrong; my mom said the melted butter should not have been hot, I think it might have been because I added the dry ingredients to the wet instead of the other way around it may have led to overmixing. Either way, they still taste really good; I used walnuts and chopped dark chocolate. And only used 1 cup of sugar. Would make again, though more cautiously, because I want to master making muffins!

I was really disappointed in these muffins. I made them for an extra special birthday treat, but they had such a weird texture and were not that tasty. I'm sure it's operator error, but I definitely won't make these again. Bummer!

Amazing amazing amazing! Sooo good. I used white chocolate chips instead of regular chocolate chips and it was perfect. They were devoured instantly. Thanks kittencal, always know that your recipes will be a hit.
