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.

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!

I baked this recipe on Saturday. I made 12 muffins easily, unfortunately 9.5 are still in the house on Monday, despite having 3 children in the house. They were quite bland and dry, actually the texture and taste reminded me of a carpet burger. Sorry, easy to make but not easy to taste.

I've been using this recipe for more than a year now - I find it easy to cook and quite fine. I can't call myself a perfect cook though. I believe that this recipe is very good for beginners.

I have to agree with the majority of comments, this recipe is not very good. There are much better Chocolate Muffin recipes available. I made a double mix and got twelve decent sized muffins but the taste is rather bland and the texture rather dry.

Just made these. Happy with the ingredient quantities ( I understood that muffins need more a mixture in the bottom to normal fairy cakes and so I split the mixture equally between six cases and they rose fine). Unfortunately, and I'm not fussy when it comes to cakes, the taste was incredibly bland. I was very disappointed. In fact, having had one there is no way that I would eat the rest-there was just no sweetness there… i'm afraid I would definitely not make again… Oh and also - 500 g of icing sugar created enough icing to cover about four times this number of muffins!! I'm not really happy that I've wound up with a significant amount of waste due to unnecessary quantity of icing sugar.

All of you people saying they are rubbish and didn't rise are probably rubbish bakers and can't follow a simple recipe. Me and my friend ( both of us 12 years old ) made these muffins together and they turned out perfect and raised a lot and were delicious.

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!
