Chocolate Chip Muffins

Vanilla base muffin with lots of semi-sweet chocolate chips, then topped with a mixture of  cinnamon and sugar.

Vanilla Muffin with Chocolate Chips

These Chocolate Chip Muffins got buried in draft mode on my blog. I made them the same time I made these Carrot Cake Muffins for a brunch I hosted during my daughter’s graduation weekend back in May. Have you ever hosted a get together in house that itsn’t yours?

We rented a house near the graduation festivities for that weekend, and I don’t know about you, but I feel totally lost in someone else’s space! It’s kind of like shopping in a grocery store you’re not familiar with.

I feel completely disoriented strolling up and down the isles, looking for items that end up being on the other side of the store! In this case, I was constantly opening and closing drawers and cabinets! I was so glad that I brought several prepared dishes and these muffins!
