chocolate chip cream cheese goodness …

dsc_0079-e

this recipe is a household favorite … especially with the boys of the phillips household! the muffins are super easy to make! as usual with everything i bake (all 5 baking recipes i make – i’m not much of a baker), i can’t take credit for this one i got the recipe from somewhere else a couple years ago – now if i could just remember where! it’s proved to be a winner with any crowd! during the holidays i add colored sugar crystals depending on the holiday/theme … works great!

chocolate cheese cream cheese muffins
400 degrees
20 minutes baking time
about 15 min prep time
*important tip* the only key to this batter is making sure the ingrediants are room temperature. otherwise the batter seizes up and is quite difficult to stir and you aren’t able to add all the flour b/c the batter is to stiff.**

1 8 0z pkg cream cheese, room temperature & soft
1/4 cup butter (4 tbsp), room temperature & soft
1 egg, room temperature
1/2 cup milk, room temperature (the recipe calls for cream, but i find milk works just as well)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 bag mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (the minis work way better for muffins – i find the regular ones are just too big)

Preheat oven. Cream sugar, butter & cream cheese together. Add vanilla, egg, milk – mix well. Add dry ingrediants – mix till all the dry ingrediants are moistened. don’t over mix. fold in room temperature chocolate chips. (coconut flakes are also good!). Put in greased muffin tin (or use paper muffin cup liners) and bake for 20 minutes or till just starting to brown on top.

tips – always enjoy with a glass of milk OR  these make a great breakfast with a good cup of coffee! 🙂
