Stewed apples make these muffins tender and sweet without impacting the great chocolate flavour.
Altered ingredient amounts. Equal amounts of Sugar and Flour just seemed too much for me, so I only used the 1/2 cup of Brown Sugar and they were still a little too sweet for me, but that might be because there were just too many Choc Chips. I also added one mashed Banana. I creamed the Egg and Sugar, then beat in the Butter and mixed in the rest of wet ingredients. Made them light and fluffy. - 31 Oct 2010
I liked this recipe because it is relatively low in fat. It had too much sugar though, so I only used the Brown Sugar, left the white sugar out. I also added a mashed Banana, and they were very tasty. There were too many Choc Chips, so next time I'll make them with only 1/2 cup of Choc Chips. This is a good healthy recipe. The Apple and Banana made them lovely and moist. Didn't bother with the Icing Sugar. The kids loved making and eating them! - 31 Oct 2010
When I saw all of the positive reviews for these muffins, I thought I'd found a winner. Boy was I wrong. The muffins are very sugary tasting, bland, and lacking in chocolate flavor. Fudgy was definitely the wrong adjective to use in the name, because there is nothing fudge-like about them. I was expecting something more rich and flavorful. Definitely one of the worst chocolate-chocolate chip muffins I've ever tasted. I won't be making these again. - 12 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
