toll house muffins II

Imagine a big soft cookie in muffin form… that’s these.

Earlier in the year, I made a low fat version of these. They were good, but not “died and gone to food heaven” good. That’s why these are here. You know what’s even better? If you happen to have left over chocolate bunnies, you can chop them up and toss em in the batter. I’ve done that with chocolate bunnies before. One year my mom got me a 2 lb chocolate bunny, it ended up making a lot of chocolate chunk baked goods. See… now I gave you an excuse to buy up all the old Easter candy that’s 70% off in shopping carts at the entrance of stores.  I’m helping the economy in my own little way. 🙂

As you can see, I used mini chips in mine. No bunny chopping went on.  I didn’t get a 2 lb rabbit this year, and my girls gobbled their bunnies up. Now I should go hit up those sale shopping carts….

As with most recipes… there is always the two mixtures…and two bowls to wash…grrr.

As you can see, I decided to hand mix this- needed a little arm workout after Easter, you know. 😉

My mini chips… eek, looking at this pic, they look a bit old, huh?  Oh well, they tasted good to me. Hope the chocolate police don’t come and get me for chocolate neglect.

I love before n after baking pics. Yes, I will say that every time. There may be someone new reading this. Hey! Hi new person! Hey, regular reader… meet new person. New person will have to learn all my weird quirks just like you did. You guys can chat about it. It will be fun.

Does this picture look sharper? How’s the exposure? I finally watched my 3 1/2 hr DVD on how to use my camera. I know.. I have had the camera 1 1/2 years, and I’m finally learning how to use it. Sort of. We’ll see if foodgawker or tastespotting likes it.  Hmmm…

Maybe this one.

You want the recipe now, huh? 🙂
