I got a new pumpkin shaped muffin/cupcake pan and wanted to try it out so made these chocolate chip muffins (which were delicious by the way) and then had some fun decorating them.
2 3/4 cups flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup milk
3 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips
1 Preheat oven to 350. Place paper liners in a muffin pan. If you are using a pan like my pumpkin pan then spray well with cooking spray for baking.
2 Whisk together dry ingredients then add chocolate chips and stir.
3 Whisk together wet ingredients in another bowl until well combined.
4 Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir just until combined. Scoop into liners. (If you are making traditional nonshaped muffins, you can sprinkle the tops with coarse or turbinado sugar.
5 Bake for 7 minutes at 425 then reduce to 375 for 15 -20 minutes more. Cool in pan 5 – 10 minutes before removing.
6 For my pumpkin shaped muffins, I made a simple glaze out of powdered sugar, heavy whipping cream and vanilla and colored it orange with my Wilton Color Right Food Coloring System. I drizzled it over the pumpkins and then added sprinkles and candy knives that I found at Walmart.
