Makes 10 – 12
2 cups flour
⅓ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
⅓ cup sugar
½ teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
⅔ cup milk
125g butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 cups large chocolate chips or chunks (I used a mix of broken Nestlé buttons and chocolate drops)
In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugars, baking powder and the salt.
In a separate bowl mix together the milk, eggs, butter and vanilla.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add the milk mixture. Stir to combine, then fold in the chocolate chips.
Spoon the batter into prepared muffin pans and bake at 200˚C for 15 – 20 minutes.
*If you want, when you add the chocolate, add in ½ cup of pecans.
I iced the muffins using Betty Crocker milk chocolate frosting. The papers are from Karyn! And, yes, I know I said I was going to watch what I eat, but oh well.
