These were a nice healthier option for something sweet to make. I made a half recipe using Splenda, unsweetened applesauce and skim milk. I finely grated my zucchini. Mine took 25 minutes to bake and still seemed a bit soft in the middle. I put the glaze on half of them and I don't feel it improved them...it just made them wet and full of more calories. I also feel that there were too many mini chocolate chips...it was impossible to get a bite of muffin without the chocolate flavor. I do like chocolate and orange together though. I would have rated these 3 stars but my Hubby LOVED them...he said they reminded him of the Holidays and he wants me to make them again. Good luck in the contest!
These were very good on day one. The glaze made the muffin oily from the butter. I wish the amount of orange juice would have been specified because I probably used too much because the glaze was very thin. The muffins looked great when they came out of the oven until I put the fork holes in them. I think this would have been a 5 star recipe if they were frosted with an orange-cream cheese frosting. Good luck in the contest.
