One of the regular "customers" at Cathy's Kitchen has been requesting that I make chocolate chip muffins for some time. After two failed attempts, on the third try I finally got it right!! How does that old saying go? Third time's the charm?!?!?! These are totally scrumptious, they get a little teeny crunchy on the top and the chocolate chips melt just a little. Your family will love them - our family sure did. The dozen I made around 9 a.m. this morning, were almost half gone by 10 a.m. :) Given the popularity of these muffins, I think they may need to become a permanent addition to the breakfast "menu!"
2 cups white flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup margarine, melted
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a 12-cup muffin tin, put paper liners and set aside. In large bowl, put all ingredients in the order given, except the morsels. With large spoon, mix well (it's okay if the batter is slightly lumpy). Fold in the morsels and then distribute the batter evenly between the paper liners. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of one of the muffins comes out clean. Remove from oven. Let cool 15 minutes before removing to wire rack to continue cooling.
