I followed this recipe exactly except I used the mini chocolate chips because I had those on hand. Muffins turned out perfect!! The muffins were moist and delicious. I think they had just the right amount of sweetness and not salty at all as other reviews stated. I will definitely make these again!! Thanks!!

A very nice basic recipe, that was easy to prepare and baked up beautifully! The muffins had a lovely soft interior with a crunchy top and tasted moreish! YUM!<br/>I reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup, cause I dont like my muffins too sweet and that was perfect with the sweetness from the chocolate. I think this recipe could easily be modified by adding in vanilla or cinnamon or maybe dried fruit instead of chocolate. The possibilities are endless and I will definitely try out some of them.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this tasty treat with us, Sarah!<br/>Made and reviewed for I Recommend Tag Game August 2010.

I love to cook. I've always lived in Georgia so most of my dishes have a strong southern influence. I've started trying to cook more international foods (besides Mexican, that's at least made once a week in my house). <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
