  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.

I cut the sugar back by half and I used homemade unsweetened applesauce for half of the yogurt and half of the oil called for in this recipe. I also used mini chocolate chips. Baked at 350*, these muffins were done in a little over 22 minutes. They did take longer to bake because I really filled my muffin tins--my muffins were GINORMOUS. One of THE BEST chocolate muffins we've ever had. Noone could tell that I cut back the sugar or the fat in the recipe. It still tasted luscious.

I was about to try this after seeing the video yesterday, but the measurements and ingredients are different in the recipe here and the video. I'm not sure which is right. Are the reviews for the written recipe or the video. The video calls for sour cream (as opposed to yogurt in the recipe) and no salt, and the amounts of flour and sugar are different. Seems like a major mix-up to me.

Really one of the luscious muffins I have ever baked.. Very chocolatey n it tasted yummier n more moist the next day .I didnt make any changes in the recipe.The baking time might vary a bit.. I preheated the oven to 190 degrees only. Got 24 muffins and 3 small cup cakes.

I really like this recipe. With my first batch, it made two dozen regular sized muffins and one dozen mini muffins, and they were all gone within a few days. My second time around I tweaked the recipe a little, using 1/4 tsp mint extract instead of vanilla and mint chocolate chips. Tasty either way, but I am going to try it with a number of different chip combinations because the recipe is so simple, tasty and adaptable.

These were FABULOUS!! I made changes based on personal preferences, but the recipe is good AS IS!! 1. DEFINITELY add 1 tsp salt. 2. I used 1/4 cup STRONG COFFEE (cooled) instead of the milk, intensifies the chocolate flavor, you WILL NOT taste the coffee, I promise! 3. I used Vanilla Greek yogurt, because that's what I had. 4. Baked only for 16 or 17 minutes, and I also ended up with 18 muffins. Thank you so much, this is an EASY, KEEPER RECIPE!!!!

First time I made it, I used Mint Chocolate husband's friends loved them. I am now making a batch with Chocolate Chips and substituded the vanilla for homemade Kahlua. My husband will bring these with him on his hunting trip. He feels spoiled. (and because of my oven I baked at 395 deg for 14 minutes)
