If you like banana bread, you’ll love these muffins. This is a Betty Crocker recipe and works perfectly well. You get the banana flavour as well as small bursts of chocolate. One of the best things about this recipe is the final touch you need to give the muffins. The cinnamon sugar with melted butter. It amplifies the the taste further more. The chocolate chips I used were Hershey’s milk chocolate ones. They’re bigger than the ones we get here and taste great. If you have anyone coming from the States or anywhere else, have them bring you these. I can’t wait to use these chips in cookies!
These are classic cookies. If you look at a Martha Stewart recipe or a Betty Crocker one, they’re all the same with one or two minor tweaks. I stuck to my basic cookie dough recipe and added a whole lot of chocolate chips to it. It’s the usual butter and sugar mixture with flour and baking soda. Sometimes it’s best to stick to the classics. But you can still alter the taste and texture with sugar. I mixed white and brown sugar. The brown sugar makes the cookie more chewy and gives it a caramel like flavour. I made some hot chocolate to go with it, and might I say it was the best decision. I can’t stop recommending the hot chocolate powder from Mason & Co. It’s incredibly luscious and rich.
