Toll House Streusel Muffins

"From the Nestle Chocolate website. When you need that chocolate fix but want more than just a chocolate chip cookie then these may do the trick. I printed this recipe off in 1999 - and I remember my choco-holic daughter just loving these muffins. Unfortunately time and my unorganized printed out recipe collection has not allowed me to make these in a while but that will all change now."
