These were so easy to make and so, so yummy! I used a crunchy peanut butter for a more pronounced peanut taste... To prepare the chocolate filing, use a glass measuring cup and melt the ingredients in the microwave. Using the measuring cup, allows you to "reheat" the chocolate as necessary for an easy "pour". These disappeared as quickly as I filled the "cups" with my family clamoring for more!!!


These were excellent! I made the recipe exactly as indicated, except I DOUBLED the cookie dough/muffin part (I used the exact amount of chocolate filling ingredients per the recipe, though). That gave me exactly the amount of chocolate filling I needed, since I read other people's reviews that they had too much chocolate left over. I made the exact amount of chocolate in the recipe, but doubled the amount of cookie dough, and the amount of chocolate filling came out perfect for the doubled batch of muffins. The trick I learned to getting the muffins to come out without any trouble was this--as soon as they are out of the oven, go ahead and use the melon baller to make the indentation in the muffin (as recipe indicates). Then, let the muffins rest in the pan about 10 minutes before you remove them from the pan--mine came out perfectly. I just used a sharp knife and it took no effort to remove them. I also greased the mini-muffin pans before using, so that may have helped, and baked them exactly for 14 minutes. I highly recommend these--they are visually very appealing also. It looks like you spent a lot of time making them, when they were really pretty easy. Thanks for the great recipe Deborah! They will become a staple of our household, and not just for Christmas.


Excellent!! I made the recipe as written. I used the pestle (from my mortar & pestle) to make the well in the center. It was well worth the time it took. I didn't have to double the dough but I did make sure that the well was deep without making the bottom see through. I let them cool for about 8 minutes before removing them from the pan and transferring them to the cooling wracks. Then I let them cool for another 15 minutes before I started on the fudge filling. There was maybe enough left over fudge to fill two more puddles. The result was delicious!
