Sorry, I really wanted this one to work but the mix was just too dry. I had to add another cup and a half of milk.

EDITED: I used white chocolate chips - Nestle, I believe - and I got 18 muffins out of this recipe. Though I thoroughly sprayed the muffins tins, the muffins still stuck and some crumbled as I tried to remove them, but that's the only real problem I had. Cooking time was about right, and though I didn't find these rich muffins very flavorful at first, I've discovered that they taste much better once cooled (and on a day when I haven't been eating everything in sight and can savor and enjoy the flavor more...). I'll admit that they were a little dry, but not too much so. Good recipe!
