If you like Chocolate chip cookies, you will love chocolate chip muffins! I love to eat these in the morning for breakfast or for a late night snack. These delicious muffins are packed with chocolate chips and walnuts. If you do not want to use walnuts, pecans will work just a well. As you can see this recipe calls for an entire bag of chocolate chips, if you do not want that many you can cut down on the amount a little. These muffins are very easy to make, I think I had them in the oven within 5 minutes. If you are looking for a great tasting muffin recipe, give this a try! This recipe makes 12-18 muffins, depending on the size. Enjoy.
