These White Chocolate Chip Muffins were sweet and delightful - especially with a cup of tea or coffee!
A couple of months ago, I bought a bag of white chocolate chips as a part of a “buy one, get one free” deal my grocery store had and since I was already buying semi-sweet chocolate chips, I figured I'd grab a bag of white chocolate chips too!
Surely I would use them for a Holiday recipe or some kind of cute Valentine’s Day treat, or so I thought. But as life happened, between traveling, work, friends in town, etc., the white chocolate chips fell back on my priority list...and to the back of my pantry.
So, when I was organizing my pantry the other day and I saw these white chocolate chips I still had sadly looking at me from the back of the shelf, seemingly begging “please eat us!”, the idea for White Chocolate Chip Muffins came to mind!
I’ve always been a milk or dark chocolate kind of person although I fondly remember Hershey’s “Cookies n Cream” bar that my parents would buy for me from time to time which has white chocolate and bits of Oreo cookies.
I had all the ingredients already except for muffin cup liners so I got to work making these because I wanted to bring them to the beach the next morning…and maybe a little dessert that night too!
I wasn't sure what to expect but that first warm bite got rid of any speculation I had on whether or not these would taste good!

**The brown spots look like chocolate chips but it's actually from the Pam's Baking Spray I used which I highly recommend for baking!
