“This recipe originally came from Guideposts magazine. I first got to try the result at my mother's house this summer and loved it! Unfortunately, when I got home, I couldn't seem to find the recipe anywhere online. My mom sent me the recipe so now I can make them anytime I want to (and that's pretty often!) Normally I don't re-post recipes that are not personal, but this is an exception as I don't want to lose it and I think others may be having trouble finding it as well! Please note that I have not tried to make this myself yet, so I'm taking these instructions on faith. I will update them if I think they need changing once I've tried this on my own. A couple of quick notes: If you have large muffin pans, this will make 12 large muffins plus 6 smaller (regular) muffins. The listed yield is for regular muffins only. You can also easily do this in a loaf pan if preferred. The recipe also states that you can cut the sugar and chocolate chips in half if you find the recipe too sweet - it will not cause problems.”
