If you like chocolate chip cookies then you will love these indulgent chocolate chip muffins! They are moist, tender and exploding with rich chocolate chips.

The past couple of weeks I have been sending in muffins with my husband on Thursday mornings to share with his coworkers.

My Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins were such a huge hit, that my husband suggested that I make just a simple chocolate chip muffin. These muffins are so easy to make and require common ingredients that you probably have in your pantry now.
