chocolate chip muffins

I wanted to make something quick and easy because the kids wanted a snack.

Since my kids (or any kids for that matter) will eat anything with chocolate, I guess chocolate chip muffins was the way to go.

And these muffins are chock full of chocolate chips. I added two types of chocolate chips – the first were chocolate buttons that I added to the batter itself. These chocolate chips will melt once they hit the oven and create little pockets of soft melty chocolate. On top of the muffins, I added chocolate chips that are able to hold their shapes even when baked and they give a crunch when you bite into the muffin.

Delicious!

My little girl saw that I was going to bake and insisted on putting on her apron to “help”.

But Barbie turned out to be more interesting than baking, so, oh well! :D

Anyway back to my muffins.

As most of you already know, muffins can be put together very quickly. Apart from the usual having to measure the ingredients correctly, the only other thing one has to take note of is not to over mix the batter as that always leads to tough muffins, which is of course a BIG NO NO.

So here are the instructions on how to make these muffins.

Start by melting the butter and letting it cool to room temperature before using.

In a big mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients – flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Add 1 3/4 cups of the chocolate chips and mix.

In another bowl, mix together the wet ingredients – butter, eggs, milk and vanilla extract.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry.

Mix until the flour is just moistened.

Dish the batter into a muffin pan. Scatter the remaining chocolate chips on top.

Bake at 220°C for 7 minutes then down it down to 180°C and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes.

Allow the muffins to cool in the pans for 5-10 minutes before transferring them onto a wire rack to cool completely.

All that is left to do is to eat them!
