Chocolate Chip Muffins

Hey All. I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend. Me, I am home, with two kids, my husband is working a double today, and I have just about had enough for one day, but besides that everything is going swimmingly, even more so since I made these little cuties. These are my daughter, Emily's, absolute favorite muffin. She has been asking for them,(relentlessly) for 3 days now, so I whipped them up quick this morning and here they are. This recipe comes from Recipezaar, whenever I am stuck looking for something to make I fall back to them time and time again, the original recipe can be found here http://www.recipezaar.com/Chocolate-Chip-Muffins-9326. I do not make these regular muffin size, I use my favorite pampered chef, mini muffin tin. I find the kids like them mini size. I put them in their lunchbag for a snack for school, they eat them for breakfast and they are a great thing to bring to someone's house for a gathering. They make 12-18 regular size muffins and about 36 mini muffins.

Here they are, only fill them halfway, because they do rise.
Chocolate Chip Muffins

2 cups flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup melted butter,cooled
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1-bag chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Grease muffin tin, whichever size you are using.
In a bowl, mix flour,both sugars,baking powder and salt.
In another bowl, mix eggs,milk, vanilla and cooled butter.
Make a well in center of dry ingredients.
Add milk mixture and stir just to combine. Stir in Chocolate chips. TIP: I always mix chocolate chips with a little bit of flour befoe adding them to muffins,breads or cakes, it keeps them from sinking to the bottom.
Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake 8-10 minutes for mini muffins and 15-20 minutes for regular size muffins.
Remove muffins to wire rack, cool for 5 minutes and ENJOY, like somebody I know.
