I’m not really sure what’s gotten into us lately but we have been posting a LOT of fruit centric desserts. Maybe it’s because summer is coming?

Whatever the reason may be, a lot of things on the blog have been lemon or strawberry (see Strawberry Shortcake, Lemon Knots, or Lemon Poppy Seed Bread) which is great! But I’d rather pace ourselves. It’s only May and I don’t want to get burned out on fruit by the time summer arrives!

Basically what I’m saying is, I need some more chocolate in my life!

So, here’s to posting more chocolatey recipes this month! Because chocolate is always a good idea. Always.

That is why I asked my mom to develop this chocolate chip muffin recipe. On top of being overwhelmed by the amount of fruit desserts in our home, the weather (I know, I know, weather talk is boring but hear me out) has been a bit miserable. It’s officially the rainy season here in Florida, so everything has been grey and wet and just bleh.

So, what better to comfort us on sad rainy days than a delicious chocolate chip muffin?

How to make chocolate chip muffins

The best part about these muffins is that they are very easy! The first thing you need to do is gather and measure all your ingredients beforehand. Don’t decide to just wing it. You will forget something (like maybe the vanilla) and have to remake them!

Don’t forget to preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line your muffin pan. Next comes for the fun part! You need to beat the butter and sugar together until it is light and fluffy. Add the eggs in one at a time. And don’t worry if the batter looks gloppy and broken. Just keep beating. It’ll come together. The vanilla goes in next. Add the flour mixture and the milk. Don’t over beat! Gently stir in the chocolate chips.

Spoon the batter into a lined muffin tin. Bake.

Can you freeze muffins?

Of course! Muffins freeze really well! Just place them in a Ziploc freezer bag, and set it in the freezer. To thaw, set them out on the counter for an hour or so; or pop them into a microwave if you can’t wait that long!

Expert Tips

  • Make sure your butter and eggs are at room temperature.
  • Do not melt the butter!
  • Once you add the flour mixture, stir gently. Do not beat.
  • Work quickly. Once liquid hits the baking powder, it starts its first rise.
  • Don’t continually open the oven door. The muffins will take longer to cook and may not rise as well as they should.
