Tried these today. Awesome and so easy to make. Thanks for the recipe.

I was on the hunt for new ways to use my "bumper crop" of raspberries this year and these muffins are now added to my favorite recipes! DELICIOUS! The whole family loved them. I highly recommend. I increased the sugar to 1/2 cup as I was concerned about an earlier review. Didn't hurt the recipe. They still had a nice rise and crown and tasted great. Not sure I would have had to do that or not but it worked. LOVED THEM! Thank you.

This is an excellent recipe. I thought it was plenty sweet. It might not have a lot of sugar in it but the white chocolate adds sweetness to it. I thought they were perfect. My daughter took them to work and her co workers devoured them.

Very yummy. I used a 1/2 cup of sugar to add a little more sweetness. Very delicious muffins. I made them for a gift. I'm sure the receiver will love them as well.

Glad to hear that you liked the muffin! You did not do anything wrong. You describe that there was butter in the bottom underneath the liners. It may be moisture instead of butter. I think it is more like steam caught under the muffin as it cools. To avoid this you might want to remove the muffin in the paper liner from the muffin pan for cooling. I hope that helps. If not, let me know.

It tasted great and was easy to have the kids help. I love sugar and thought it was plenty sweet. I do have a question. When I took the muffins out of my tin, there was butter in the bottom underneath the liners. What did I do wrong?

Sorry to hear that your family did not like this muffin recipe. We re-tested the recipe today and the only change we made was to go down to 1/2 teaspoon salt instead of 1 teaspoon. The muffin is sweet especially when it is dipped in the sugar topping. Hope you will try another muffin recipe on the web site. There are many to choose from.

Family hated them. Not sweet at all with only 1/3 cup sugar. Most recipes call for 2/3 cup now that I've looked at several more recipes to see what made this one so inedible. Sorry I made them. Taste salty, nothing like a muffin. Do not make these.

This is a very good muffin and easy to prepare. My family loves white chocolate and fresh fruit. I have tried with strawberries also. This muffin makes a great side to hot tea or coffee on a cool morning. (Really good warm too)

I love to try new muffin recipes with interesting ingredients. This one was wonderful. The only change I made was to add chopped frozen strawberries rather than raspberries. To me,I felt that the difference between the tartness of the strawberries and the sweetness of the chocolate wouldn't be as much as the difference between the raspberries and chocolate. I was pleased with the results.
