Chocolate Chip Cookie Muffins

Soft and chewy, these sweet chocolate chip cookie muffins are the ultimate treat for the cookie-lovers in your home. I know it's so close to Pesach (Passover). I live in a small apartment and have very little to prepare so yes we are still eating cookies, bread, pretzels and pizza. :)


These were last weekends special treat. I made some chocolate chip cookie batter and had some muffin pans from a previous failed muffin recipe. I decided to put some the cookie batter in those muffin pans and see what happened. It worked out really well.


Recipe:

3 1/2 Cups Flour
1/2 Tsp. Baking Powder
A Sprinkle of Salt
2 Sticks of Butter (or Margarine) Melted
1 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Firmly Packed Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Hot Water
3 Large Eggs
1 Package Semi- Sweet Chocolate Chips

Preheat the oven to 350.  Put the two sticks of margarine in an oven proof pan in the oven allowing it to melt completely. Once it has melted remove it from the oven and stir the brown sugar and hot water in with it. Put the margarine mixture to the side for one moment. Then, put the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and turn it on a medium setting to combine the ingredients. Slowly add the margarine mixture and eggs to the mixer bowl with the dry ingredients and turn the mixer on once again. Then slowly spread out the chocolate chips over the top of the newly formed batter in mixer. Keep mixing slowly adding more chocolate chips and allowing them to fold in. Grease a few muffin pans. Drop 2-3 tablespoons of cookie batter into each slot in the muffin pans filling it 3/4 of the way. Bake on 350 for about 20 minutes. Allow to cool and then serve.

Other incorporated topping options are colored or white chocolate chips, nuts or coconut, lemon zest or any other toppings of choice for different flavors.

These muffins can be stored in an airtight container for a week at the most. They can also be stored in the freezer for up to 6 months. So if you make the recipe and don't know what to do with 20 plus leftover muffins you can save them for a different occasion.

Happy Baking!
