    Nice Change

    JUDY HAYDEN from Williamsburg, IA

    I tried this recipe and the family loved it. I changed the recipe to add 1/2 tsp orange extract and used mini choc chips with the white chips. Very good Thanks for the recipe.

    I made this recipe for Mother's Day at church. The flavor was good, however, the texture was more like a biscuit than a muffin.

    Light and rephesing muffin

    John Love from PARKERSBURG, WV

    Very light hint of orange. I also think you could put all the chips in the batter and then put a power sugar and oj glaze on it. I'm wondering what milk chocolate chips would taste like . Orange and chocolate goes together. Thank you Nestle for a wonderful recipe. All that I have tried I have been very well impressed.

    Pauline Johnsey from No. Stratford, NH

    These are so good and easy. They are so pretty and look as if they came from a bakery. They are so good for a get well, welcome home or anytime gift. I make them often. Everyone thinks I went to a lot of work to make these, I do like to use the orange flavored yogurt if I can find it.

    Orange Brunch Muffins

    Mary Gates from CAPE CORAL, FL

    I wasn't sure about the taste of orange & chocolate but decided to go for it. I liked this recipe but the second time I made them I used orange yogurt instead of plain. It really helped intensify the orange flavor. I also used chopped pecans which I thought added to the overall flavor.

    Sara Reid from Waxahachie, TX

    Wow!

    Laura Pond from CHICAGO, IL

    I made these one morning before I went to work to test the recipe for a holiday breakfast. I took them to work so I wouldn't have to eat them all myself. They were so good, I ate most of them myself. This is definately going to be part of my regular baking repertory; not just for holidays.

    Made for Family

    Clara Petrovich from WEST ALLIS, WI

    I made these muffins for my Family this week. I made a double batch as I have a large family. they lasted 1 day. They eat one and took some home. They were really liked by them. I will make more as most of my family works. I also have a lady that I am care taker for. She loved them and wanted more but I told her they were all gone. She wanted to know when I was baking more. I told her next week.

    Very easy.

    These are very good when orange flavored yogurt is used and when changing the topping to chopped pecans. Sometimes no flavor in the world will do but orange and these hit the spot! Thanks.

    I made these for Easter brunch, and they were delicious, and best of all, EASY. Next time I will make a double batch for the next day. I used orange extract, in lieu of orange zest, and it was fine. Also used walnuts for a little crunch, these will be a family favorite.

    I've never been a big fan of orange muffins but I decided to give this recipe a shot. They are very good, the white chocolate chips and macadamian nuts really make a difference. I will make them often.

    Fanastic

    Nancy Missaggia from GREAT BARRINGTON, MA

    These were a huge hit at my house. I was out of nuts, so they were omitted. My husband doesn't even like orange and he ate half of them. They were so popular at home that I brought them to work. Everyone thought they were the best! They can't wait for me to make more.

    I made these muffins last week. They are great warmed with a cup of tea or coffee. They are not too sweet - just right. I made a double batch and put some in the freezer for Easter morning. Thanks for the tasty recipe.

    orange brunch muffins

    sheryl hutchinson from MANCHESTER, IA

    these were easy to make and the ornage flavor is exceptional. I substituted chocolate chips for the white chocolate morsels and added 1/4 cup coconut for a little extra flavor and texture. I also substituted vanilla yogurt for the plain yogurt as the store was out of the plain.

    added cranberries

    Mura Howard from Avon, ME

    My family just loves the bakery orange/cranberry muffins. So when I saw this recipe I had to try it. I left out the white chocolate and nuts, and added 1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries instead. Everyone enjoyed their favorite muffin, only instead of from a bakery I made them myself.

    Muffins Help Get Movers Moving

    Ann Messing from MCKINNEY, TX

    I tried these recently specifically to take to the home of friends who were moving and we were helping them load their truck. Everyone loved them--the orange with the white chocolate made a delightful combination. They were an interesting texture due to the baking mix. Very good and easy.

    Orange Lover

    Teresa Woodson from VIRGINIA BEACH, VA

    What a great way to have orange and yogurt together. Great for snack or breakfast.My family just loved them with orange juice and eggs. It made a great breakfast. Then in the afternoon they were a great snack with a cup of coffee. A healthy but good food. I can't wait to fix them again. Just thinking about them makes me hungery. I've always love orange. Now, I have another item I can fix with orange in it. I may try drissling a little chocolate on the top of the muffins next time. I think that may add a little special kick to them. Chocolate does'nt hurt anything.

    I made just 12 bigger muffins....

    Susan Campbell from GRASS LAKE, MI

    ...as you may wish to do. These are so good, one medium-sized is not enough. A big one will satisfy you, however. Served my family a basket of muffins, pitcher of fresh cold milk, a pot of coffee, and some poached eggs. Fabulous! and very easy to make. Thank you for this recipe, which is definitely a keeper.
