These were easy and fun to make.I ran out of pecans when I was making these so I used walnuts. They came out just as nice as the pecan ones. When I put these muffins out they dissapeared!

When I make Muffin . I like to ADD evaporated milk and almon flavor .and Chocolate Morsele gives the Muffins a good baking smell .

I thought the recipie was "involved" for just muffins. They turned out mostly dry & crumbly, not traditional "muffin texture". Next time I will try solid butter in the topping, not melted, for a more crumbly result. Taste was just ok, need to be moister.

I made these muffins this weekend for my family and friends that were visiting for the holiday's. I was so very disapointed with these muffins. They were very dry and actually took quite a while to make. Out of the 24 that I made only 6 were eaten I throw the rest of them away no one wanted them. :(

GOOD MUFFINS

WE MADE THESE FOR THANKSGIVING BREAKFAST, BUT SUBSTITUTED MASHED BANANAS FOR THE CHOCOLATE CHIPS. THEY TURNED OUT REAL GOOD. NEXT TIME. I'LL SUBSTITUTE 1 TEASPOON OF CREAM OF TARTAR FOR 1 OF THE TEASPOONS OF BAKING SODA.

Awesome muffins!

What makes this a family favorite is not only the good muffin taste with the chocolate, but all the crunchy stuff that goes on top!
