Although I’m not a coffee drinker, I will happily accompany any family or friends to a coffee store. I love smelling the aroma of coffee, but I never order anything. Rather, I like browsing their pastry case or menus. Often times, I will drool over the big, fluffy muffins and wish that I could bake them at home.

Chocolate chip muffins are very popular in my house, especially with a certain 8 year old. And what better way to start off our days with giant muffins? I whipped these up in about 15 minutes and let them bake while my daughter was enjoying one of her favorite TV shows.

Sadly, I realized that I only had a little bit of chocolate chips left so I couldn’t top these off with additional chips. Instead, I sprinkled on some coarse sugar to add a fun crunchy texture.
