Nothing beats a warm homemade cupcake as a birthday present, and when the combination of creativity and chocolate is involved, there really is no competition.
When sissy asked me to baked cupcakes for her OG leader. I knew I wanted to baked Chocolate Chips muffin this recipe doesn’t involve much preparation,so you can have these out of the oven in about 20 minutes depending on how quick you can throw together the ingredients.
I still managed to put together the cupcake wrapper and the crepe paper as a topper.
For frosting, I used melted Cadbury milk chocolate and candy sprinkles
Chocolate Chips Muffins with Cadbury Chocolate Frosting
Chocolate Chip Muffins:
1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 large eggs
2/3 cup (180 ml) milk (whole or reduced fat)
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups (260 grams) all-purpose flour
2/3 cups (135 grams) granulated white sugar

1 tablespoon granulated white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Chocolate Chip Muffins: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and place oven rack in the center of the oven. Butter, or line with paper liners, 12 muffin cups.
In a bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract.
In another large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips. With a rubber spatula or wooden spoon fold the wet ingredients, along with the melted butter, into the dry ingredients and stir only until the ingredients are moistened and combined. (Do not over mix or you will have tough muffins.)
Evenly fill the muffin cups with the batter, using two spoons or an ice cream scoop. In a small bowl combine the topping ingredients and then sprinkle a little topping on each muffin. Place in the oven and bake for about 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for about 5-10 minutes before removing from pan. Can be covered and stored at room temperature for a few days or they can be frozen.
