"There are some combinations that taste as if they were joined in heaven, and this is definitely one of them. These are extra-big extra-flavorful, and extra-ordinary--try them and see if you don't agree! These need to be baked in a muffin that makes LARGE muffins, so treat yourself to the perfect pan, and serve these often!"
