Toffee Chocolate Chip Muffins

Toffee Chocolate chip muffins

One of our favorite bakeries makes a Toffee muffin that we really like.  It don’t get over there on a regular basis, so I had to come up with a recipe to make them myself.  Since they did not have enough chocolate in them to suit me, I “tweaked” it just a bit to add a little more chocolate flavor.  Hope you like them.

3 cups flour

2/3 cup brown sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup milk

1 cup sour cream

6 tablespoons melted butter

2 tsp. vanilla

1 bag of Toffee bits

1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (you can use the mini chips or regular)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Fill muffin pans with liners.  Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Beat eggs with milk, sour cream, vanilla and butter.  Combine the wet and dry ingredients until just moistened.  Do not overmix, this will cause your muffins to be tough. Mix in toffee bits and chocolate chips.  At this point you can add chopped pecans if you want.  Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t.  Spoon into muffin cups.  I use an ice cream scoop, it puts just the right amount into each cup.  Bake for 15-20 minutes.  They will be a golden brown.  Do not overcook, this will produce a dry muffin.  If in doubt, insert a toothpick into one of the muffins and if it comes out clean, they are done.  Cool on rack.  Makes about 16 good-sized muffins.
