Homemade Chocolate Chip Muffins

Monday, April 5, 2010

I know that many of us cheat with these and buy the box mixes. But these are SO easy, probably include all the ingredients already in your cabinet and are SO MUCH better. Melt in your mouth delicious. I like to make the big jumbo muffins and then just the extra batter to make the mini-muffins to freeze for my little 1 year old. We all end up with chocolate all over our face after eating these, but SO worth it!

Preheat oven to: 400 degrees                                                  Cook time: 15-20 min

- 2 c. all-purpose flour
- 1/3 c. light-brown sugar
- 1/3 c. sugar
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2/3 c. milk
- 1/2 c. butter - melted and cooled
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 package (12 oz) chocolate chips
- Optional: 1/2 c. walnuts or pecans, chopped

1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease your muffin cups. Keep in mind that cooking times might vary depending on size of muffin cups.
2) In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugars, baking powder, and salt.
3) In another bowl, stir together milk, eggs, butter, and vanilla until blended. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients; add the milk mixture and stir to just combine. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
4) Spoon batter into muffin cups; bake 15-20 min or until knife inserted in center of one muffin comes out clean. Remove muffin tin to wire rack; cool 5 min and remove from tins to finish cooling.

- For a dessert twist - add cranberries and white chocolate chips
- Add your favorite fruit - blueberries or cut up raspberries, etc.
