I've just made these - with mini double deckers and caramel buttons put into them. They turned out really well, not dry. Soft - cracked on top as in recipe. But I would not put icing on them. I used olive oil and soft brown sugar. I will try with gluten free flour at some point. Tiny tiny negative point - they do stick to the muffin case a lot... but so long as no-one watching you can retrieve!

Keep going to the icing stage! I nearly abandoned them as the basic muffin was quite bland and not sweet enough, but when i iced them, the combination was lovely. So keep going!

I made this, the muffins grew to an extent then stopped. They didn't crack on top or anything and were fully baked on the inside.

Lovely! First time I had ever made muffins and these were really easy and came out so well. I just added some white chocolate chunks to the mixture.

These were delicious! I added some chopped up milk chocolate and didn’t bother icing them. Easy recipe and will definitely be making again.

I had made the mixture, added chocolate chips and then I read the comments! And after reading them I thought - what have I done they're going to be terrible! So to try and get rid of the dryness and bland taste I added some orange liquor! (Not suitable for children obviously). And they taste really nice! Can't taste the orange but they certainly taste lovely to me!

DO NOT MAKE THESE! I added orange zest to try to add flavour, but even that barely helped. Inedible. Very bland. Worst muffin I’ve ever eaten.

Just made these with my 5 year old, she did most of it. We used a bag full of dark chocolate chips and a sprinkling of mini choco beans. Ate them warm, delishious! I personally like the bitter less sweet taste.

Practically inedible. Wish I'd read the comments first. Yuk.

GROSS! I've cooked this recipe twice by accident. Bland and dense. Why is this recipe at the top of the page when you search chocolate muffins on Google? Waste of ingredients. Need to get this recipe taken down. Feel like I've been trolled by 'spagettiqueen'. DO NOT COOK. FIND ANOTHER RECIPE!

Anyone know if I can freeze this? My tutor group are having a bake sale on Wednesday for charity and I was wondering if I could bake them today, freeze them and then ice them the night before? Thanks!
