Chocolate Chip Cranberry Muffins Recipe

I am a huge fan of muffins, and this recipe is one of my favorites! Nothing is as good as a warm, sweet muffin on a cold winter day.

These muffins smell so good too, every time I cook them my whole house fills with the wonderful smell of cinnamon and brown sugar. I wish I could find a candle that smells as good as these muffins, I would buy them all!

With every bite of these muffins you get something different, one bite is a sweet cranberry, another bite is a warm chocolate chip. You just have to be careful not to eat them all yourself!

How are they made?

The muffins are very easy and only take about 15 mins from the mixer to the oven. To begin you will need to gather your ingredients, sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla, baking powder, milk, dried cranberries (You can also use raisins, or both!), brown sugar, chocolate chips, and cinnamon and mix well.

After you have everything mixed you are ready to grease a muffin/cupcake pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25 mins.

The best way to check that these muffins are done in the middle is to stick a toothpick down one muffin all the way to the bottom, the only thing you should see on the toothpick when you pull it back up is some chocolate from the chocolate chips.

Once your muffins are done all that is left to do is to sprinkle with some powdered sugar and serve!
