Taste and Create Blog Sharing Dessert Month

Taste and Create gives bloggers the opportunity to test each other’s recipes and then, naturally, blog about them. This is my first month participating; I am new to blogging, having been up and running only a couple of months. I was VERY lucky to be paired with an experienced blogger; No Reason Needed
You should see her blog! It is wonderful; filled with yummy recipes, family tidbits and crafts too.

Being as this is back to school time I searched her recipes for something I could put into my daughter’s lunch bag and I certainly found it! Chocolate Chip Muffins. They are easy to make; I followed her recipe to the letter with one tiny change; I made half mini muffins and half full sized muffins. My reason being, the minis, if they last long enough, will be perfect for a brown bag treat!  Light and fluffy, very flavorful with just the right amount of chocolate chips!  A definite MAKE AGAIN recipe!

Here is the recipe and I encourage you to give it a try!



1 1/2 cups flour

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup dark brown sugar, tightly packed

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

2 eggs

1/2 cup butter, melted and slightly cooled

1/2 cup milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup chocolate chips


Pre heat the oven to 375˚F. Line 12 muffin cups or grease the cups.

In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda and salt and keep aside.

In another bowl, beat the eggs with a balloon whisk for 2 mins. Add the milk, butter and vanilla extract and stir.

Add the butter mixture to the dry ingredients and mix lightly just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Do not over mix the batter.

Spoon into the muffin cups and bake for 20-22 mins till done.
