Chocolate Chip Cupcakes/Muffins/Cookies

I would probably call these “Blondies with Chocolate Chips” but who am I to change a recipe title? Don’t let the name fool you–aside from the fact they are baked in cupcake tins, they are nothing like a cupcake–they are buttery and chewy like a blondie. And they are quite delicious. So much in fact, one of my coworkers said these may be his new favorite and ranked them up there with cake balls. I know!

As you can see from the picture, mine are ugly. I omitted the nuts in the topping so I was left with a goopy chocolate chip mixture (which tastes delicious just looks sort of blah). Also, I was out of mini chips so I had to use regular size and I think they are entirely too large for the petite size of the cupcake/muffin/cookie. All that aside, I’d still eat them. In fact, I uh, may have had a few.

Cupcake Ingedients
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cupcake Preparation
Preheat oven to 350°. Line miniature muffin pans and coat with cooking spray.

Beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add vanilla extract and mix well. Add egg and beat until blended.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter mixture, mixing just until combined.

Spoon about 1 & 1/2 teaspoons batter into each muffin cup. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Topping Ingredients
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Topping Preparation
Beat brown sugar, egg, and salt until blended. Stir in chocolate chips, pecans, and vanilla.

After cupcakes have been baked, spoon topping mixture over each cupcake. Bake for 8-10 more minutes.

Makes about 3 dozen cupcakes.
