I liked this recipe, except I put more sugar, a splash of milk,left out baking soda, and put a tsp of vanilla. it was quite good. Also for just a fancy touch I sprinkled powdered sugar on top.

This recipe is easy to make and is probably best suited for people who don't like very sweet food. I made this in Japan with some Japanese students, and they enjoyed it, since usually many dessert recipes are too sweet for them.

Easy for kids, yes. Good, no. I'm really sorry. These just didn't fly at all. We really tried to like them.

Like others have said, not a super sweet muffin, and not a real chocolatey taste. Be careful not to overfill, they don't puff but spread over top of muffin pan.
