haven't tried these yet, but you can stop the mini chips from sinking to the bottom by tossing them in about 1or 2 teaspoons of flour. try it, it will work. it also works when making blueberry muffins.
These were delicious. We made them exactly as directed. They aren't too sweet and were very fluffy. My only complaint is that the mini chips all sunk to the bottom of the cupcake. Is there a reason for that? Still delicious!
my four year old son asked for mini choc chip muffins and I found this recipe...used butter flavor crisco, rather than waiting for butter to come to room temp. they were good, but in my oven only needed about 13 minutes. I will probably make them again, as they were a hit with the kids!
