- 2 cups semisweet Chocolate Chips, divided (1 & 1/2 cups and 1/2 cup) I used regular sized, and about a half cup of mini, along with white chocolate chips..of which I put a single white chocolate chip on each muffin.
HOW TO: Oven at 375 degrees.
Heat oven. line 18 muffin cups with liners. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk: oil, sugar, sour cream & milk. Stir in eggs and vanilla. Mix till well combined. Set aside.
