I found a chocolate chip recipe online with good reviews. It was easy to make, and tasty. I made large muffins for myself, and mini muffins for the friends. There is something a little selfish about that statement, but uhhh....I was trying to limit the number of cupcake liners I use because I'm, like, earth friendly and stuff.
Here's the muffin recipe I found at Frieda.
Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe
Ingredients: 2 eggs, 1/2 c. vegetable oil, 1 c. milk, 1 t. vanilla extract, 1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour, 1/2 c. sugar, 1/4 c. cocoa powder, 1 T. Baking Powder, 1 t. Salt, /2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Instructions: Combine eggs, oil, milk, and vanilla. Mix Well. In a separate bowl, mix flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, salt, and chocolate chips. Make a well in the center and pour in the wet ingredients. Fold mix gently until all ingredients are mixed. Small lumps are fine. Distribute evenly into 12 regular cupcake liners (or a greased tin), or 24 small muffin cups. Sprinkle a couple of chocolate chips on top of each muffin. Bake at 400 for about 18 minutes.
