OMG! First time making them. I'd say they are almost better than chocolate chip cookies!

Love this recipe. I make them in mini muffin pans. Then I wrap up 3 in a bag and give to the kids for a school snack. Cheaper and better tasting than the store bought.

It's perfect. It's the first time for me to bake and I was so afraid. I didn't add any extra to it, but I think more walnut will be great. Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe... all the family enjoyed it.

Very good. Grandpa (my husband) and the grand-kids all give it a great big thumbs up. I understand the people who think it has too many chocolate chips. I'm sure you could reduce that to 9 ounces and they'd still be good. But, we thought it was wonderful just as you wrote it. Thanks!

I thought that this recipe had too much of a vanilla taste to it. Maybe a little less vanilla and they'd be perfect.

Worked great for us. Didn't use nuts. Added 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to the dry ingredient. Success!

Me and my friend wanted a snack as our breakfast, and came across these. We figured that they would be good as mini-muffins. It made around 50. Delicious for the whole family.

Made these into jumbo muffins on Mother's Day! Replaced the chocolate chips with cinnamon chips, and they turned out lovely! Delicious!

I am NOT a regular baker, but I decided to be a little daring and make these for treats at work. I was pretty scared putting them into the oven because I had never made them before . . . I checked on them after 15 minutes and had to close the oven door immediately and hold on to my heart. They looked AMAZING! So amazing, in fact, that my roommates and I gobbled them all up and I ended up making a brownie mix for work. Delicious!

I used 2 teaspoons of salt and more chocolate chips with raisins, that's also a delicious alternative!

I used the exact recipe and the muffins came out more like scones - hard as rocks. Any tips? Add more milk, sour cream or eggs?
