I took to heart what some were saying about the dryness and taste and I tweaked the recipe a little also. I did: 2 eggs 1 cup milk 1 cup chocolate morsals 3/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup oil 1/4 tsp cinnamon and left all the other ingredients the same. The morsals did not sink to the bottom. The muffins were moist. The cinnamon was just an extra hint of flavor. Everyone loved them! Read More

These were not good at all - even with the alterations that were suggested. My daughter had been bugging me to make choc chip muffins for months - and she took a bite of one muffin and wouldn't touch the rest. Very disappointing in both taste and texture. Sorry - I usually try to come up with something nice to say but I can't with this recipe. My advice to anyone searching for a good muffin recipe - keep looking. The alterations may help some - but not enough. Save yourself the hassle. Read More

The taste of these muffins was okay but the texture was quite dense - more like a biscuit. I followed the recipe exactly. Read More

This recipe was okay. Not at all what I expected it to be and I probably won't make it again. Read More

These muffins are delicious and so easy to make. I didn't want too much sugar in this snack so I used a dash of cinnamon-sugar in place of the brown and white sugar topping suggested. Read More

Well I followed all the suggestions I read here. I added more sugar 1/4 cup brown sugar less oil 2 eggs more chips...plus I added a tsp of vanilla. I also sprinkled the tops with some extra morsels before the brown sugar/sugar mixture. Anyway I am guessing they would not have been as good if I followed the original recipe. But with the changes they were delicious. They tasted like bakery muffins! The dough was not as thick as I thought it would be so I didn't need to add extra milk. Thank you to all of you who sent in your reviews. They are always a big help! I will make these again sometime! Read More

I baked those for the Bake Sale at my daughter's school this morning. Good recipe yummy and very moist! I followed some of the recommendations (more milk and a little more oil) and it turned out great. As for next time: I would cancel the salt. Read More

Ok so my boyfriend and I have died and gone to muffin heaven... this chocolate chip muffin recipe may sound pretty standard to make but I think the brown& white sugar topping really does add something extra (like a sugar high lol). Instead of 3/4 cup milk I added 1 cup and I used regular semisweet chocolate morsels instead of mini - but apart from this I followed the rest of the recipe exactly. I did end up with way too much leftover sugary topping though so I would suggest mixing 2 tbsp white sugar and 1 tbsp brown. I also sprayed the muffin tin with Pam (with Flour for Baking) AND gave a quick spray inside each paper liner which I credit the ease of taking these muffins out. 20 mins in the oven is all it took for these babies to come out perfectly puffed and sugared.. This recipe is def. a keeper for chocolate chip muffins - Thanks Nora! Read More
