Chocolate Chip Muffins

Sometimes it's best to just keep things simple. A bag of chocolate chips and a quick batter, mix them together and what do you get, only these amazing chocolate chip muffins! I love muffins for breakfast and I love them to include chocolate so these are perfect. They remind me of chocolate chip cookies in muffin form so I like to call them incognito chocolate chip cookies. Nothing out of the ordinary in this recipe, except for perhaps how good the finished product is. If you don't know what to have for breakfast tomorrow, don't blame me.

Honestly, this recipe takes about five seconds to put together. You get to melt the butter, and since it calls for a whole bag of chocolate chips, you don't even have to measure them out. I love it when that happens. Wet ingredients, dry ingredients, chocolate chips, mix them all together and pop them in the oven. In just a few minutes you have hot, fluffy muffins, loaded with chocolate and ready to devour.
