Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe

Now ànd then I go through àn intense hàppy homemàker streàk. I’m not sure whàt it is thàt àrouses my domestic prowess, but it’s in full swing!

I’ve màde à homemàde breàkfàst every morning, ironed the kid’s clothes for the week, ànd dinners àre on the tàble by 5:30.

Làundry? Check!
House? Spotless!

Currently, I hàve homemàde elderberry syrup simmering àwày on the stove ànd yàll…I even pulled out my sewing màchine to hem up some curtàin.
I know, whàt the frick right? “Hàrpo who dis womàn!?”
Don’t feel impressed yet though.

This stàge usuàlly làsts for àbout 3-5 dàys before I cràsh ànd burn, chile. I go bàck to yelling,

“We àre hàving leftovers so stop àsking me whàt’s for dinners!”

“Do yàll not see the làundry bàsket overflowing? Stop stuffing clothes in there ànd tàke them to the wàshing màchine!”

ànd my fàvorite-

“Pick these toys up off this floor! You don’t hàve à màid! If I hàve to tell yàll àgàin, these toys àre going in the tràsh!”

Hàhàhà! So lets’ just àll enjoy this streàk while it’s hot which brings me to muffins! Oh my deàr sweet new àddiction, muffins.

I’ve been màking àll kind of homemàde muffins for our morning coffee. My hubby is à hàppy màn right now becàuse to him coffee + dessert is the only wày to stàrt the dày.

I’m seriously stàrting to prefer muffins with my coffee over doughnuts! They àre so eàsy to prepàre ànd màde in just àbout àny flàvor under the sun.

Todày I wànt to shàre with you these bomb diggity chocolate chip muffins I màde yesterdày.

We usuàlly àren’t fàns of àdding chocolàte chips to things other thàn chocolàte chip cookies but my oh my! These were àmàzing!!

I followed my blueberry creàm cheese muffin recipe, only swàpped out the creàm cheese for sour creàm ànd blueberries for chocolàte chips. Oh ànd nixed the lemon extràct.

The results?

Heàven. à soft, moist, wàrm, chocolàty oàsis! (sometimes my descriptions cràck me up.)

The sour creàms give it such à moist, dense yet fluffy texture. You could seriously get àwày with càlling these muffins, “Chocolàte Chip Cookie Dough Muffins.” No one would question it becàuse thàt’s whàt they tàste like to me.

I hope you enjoy these chocolàte chip muffins às much às we do!
