These muffins are wonderful! I made them for my husband and me, and we both loved them. The streusel provides nice crunch, and they're loaded with chocolate chips. Delicious!

These muffins are wonderful. I was looking for a bit more dessert-like muffin and this is it. These would be a great addition to any brunch or afternoon snack.

I was looking for a chocolate chip muffin receipe.Went to your website and found the one for Toll House Stresel Muffins.My daughter was here for supper and saw the muffins in the refrigerator and said " Oh I have got to have one of those " She liked it so well I offered to let her take the last one to work with her in the morning.She said " You could and it would make my breakfast special tomorrow."

These muffins are so good! We made these one morning when we ran out of chocolate chip muffin mix. Let's just say we won't be buying chocolate chip muffin mix anymore - these are so much better! I froze the ones we couldn't eat for breakfast the first day. They warm up great in the microwave and make a great quick school morning breakfast.

I made these muffins this morning and they are delicious! Very moist and east to make. I made them in jumbo muffin size and everyone thoroughly enjoyed them. I'll definitely be making them again soon.

I use this with my high school foods class. They love the muffins. My only change to the recipe is to cut back on the chocolate chips--there are way too many--some of my students put even less than my change in.

Grand Review!

We made these for a "brunch" we were having, but made them in the BIG muffin tins. They were great!

These were so easy and fast to make. I fixed a basket and included them and took them to a friend who is having Chemo treatment and she just loved them. I have to find some more recipes in my file so that she may enjoy some more tasty treats. Thanks again for providing such great recipes.
