Though they're deep, dark, and decadent enough to be dessert, we will gladly eat these double chocolate muffins for breakfast. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Sara Mellas.

    Wonderfully moist, great chocolate flavor. I substituted sour cream with heavy cream and butter. I also added white chocolate chips. All my guys loved them! Thanks.

    They were amazing, but could’ve been chocolatier. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any sour cream, but (I think) it didn’t affect the taste. Would probably make again, but a bit dry.

    They tasted great, but they were dry I only baked for 15 min.

    Amazing! I had almost everything around the house except chocolate chips and baking soda. I substituted the chocolate chips for butterscotch chips and 1 tsp of baking soda for 3 tsp of baking powder. My batch actually made around 17 muffins which I don't mind at all. More for me! I'll probably try these again when I have the two missing ingredients as well. Thanks!

    Good recipe. Easy to make and the muffins turned out moist and tasty. I'm not really sure what the person is talking about it not having enough sugar. If anything it could have less.

    they are great! I did see were someone posted about the sweetness so I used 1/2 cup dark brown sugar and 3/4 cup granulated sugar. they may be more of a cake then a muffin at this point but good none the less. breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack
