Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love these chocolate chip muffins! They are light and fluffy and moist. I have made these muffins a handful of times before and they are so simple and easy.

While so many of Grandma Clarke’s recipes make multiple dozens, this is a true 1-dozen recipe that (finally) doesn’t need to be halved. In fact, if you like your muffins big and tall, this recipe may only make 9 or 10 muffins!

You’ll notice that I skipped the last step of drizzling melted chocolate chips on top and settled for sprinkling 4-5 extra whole chipits* on top instead. I have tried to drizzle melted chocolate in the past and it hasn’t looked pretty. I haven’t mastered melting chocolate yet.

Could have used more chocolate chips… still delicious!

*Chipits, by the way, are the brand name for Hershey’s miniature chocolate chips, but in the Clarke household, we use it as a cute shorthand for chocolate chips of any size. Possibly a Canadianism.

  1. Old family recipes are my favourites, and since I know Audrey personally, making some of her recipes will be all the more special!
