Chocolate Chip Muffins (Bakery-Style)

These moist and delicious chocolate chip muffins are made Bakery-Style with semi-sweet chocolate chips and are topped with crystallized sugar. 

Bakery-Style Muffins

These muffins have a tall muffin top and are topped with crystallized sugar just like your local bakery.  Achieving a taller muffin is fairly simple.  It’s as simple as adjusting your oven temperatures during baking. 

The oven starts off at 425° for 5 minutes and then the oven temperature is reduced to 350° for the remaining baking time.

By changing the oven temperature it prevents the oven from overbaking the outside of the muffins and from underbaking the insides.

Muffins for Chocolate Lovers

These chocolate chip muffins have chocolate chips in every bite!  I used a mixture of semi-sweet chocolate chips and semi-sweet mini chocolate chips.  You can even get more creative by mixing in chocolate chunks instead of the minis!

Another great mixture of flavors is replacing some of the chocolate chips with white chocolate chips!

To make these muffins I used:

Moist and Fluffy Muffins

The key to making moist and fluffy muffins is to not overbeat the mixture.  By overbeating, you create a dense, tough, and chewy muffin.

I use room temperature eggs and sour cream because it doesn’t take as much to incorporate those ingredients into the mixture and prevents overbeating.

I also beat in the flour alternately with the buttermilk.  This keeps the batter smooth and creamy.  When adding the chocolate chips, use a spoon to add them in because it further reduces the risk of overbeating your muffin mixture.

Remember!  Just beat the muffin mixture together just long enough to incorporate the ingredients.
