Let your sweet tooth fly free! Today is National Chocolate Chip Day, so for just this one day, you have an excuse to gorge yourself on sugary, chocolatey snacks as much as your body can handle.
To celebrate, you can certainly run to your favorite supermarket or bakery for a chocolate chip cookie or muffin. You might also want to try making your favorite chocolate chip snack at home, whether by yourself or with a partner or friends. Why not start with these four delicious chocolate chip-including recipes?
The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Ever, from Joy Food Sunshine
You might as well start with the simple stuff. Most people love chocolate chip cookies, and they’re pretty easy to make — even baking beginners can handle this recipe from Joy Food Sunshine! Start by combining some baking essentials in a bowl, then add in your butter and eggs. Toss in your chocolate chips and mix everything to an even consistency. Then roll your dough into tiny balls and bake them for no more than 10 minutes. What a quick and straightforward way to start your National Chocolate Chip Day celebrations!
Chocolate Chip Muffins, from AllRecipes
Muffins are a bit more technically challenging to make than cookies are, and you’ll need a specially-shaped muffin tray to bake these properly. Instructions for preparing muffin batter really aren’t all that different from the cookie recipe above — you’ll need to mix some baking staples and your chocolate chips into a lumpy batter. Then, you’ll pour your batter into your muffin tray and put it into the oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Once you can stick a toothpick or fork into a muffin and pull it out without anything sticking to the fork, you’ll know you’re good to go!
Chocolate Chip Brownies, from Taste of Home
You’ll need to be ever slightly more gentle when you mix the ingredients for this recipe, but you won’t be mixing in the chocolate chips — those will be sprinkled on at the end. You’ll start by creaming your butter and sugar, and then you’ll add eggs and vanilla to your cream. Next, you’ll mix in your solid ingredients, but you’ll need to be careful to only stir everything until it’s all just blended — overmixing can mess up the consistency of your brownies. Pour your mix into two 9-inch square baking pans, top them with chocolate chips, and let them bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars, from Averie Cooks
A healthy dose of peanut butter takes this brownie-like recipe to the next level. The preparation instructions for these bars don’t differ drastically from the brownie recipe above except in one exciting way. You’ll get to stir a whole cup of chocolate chips into the batter for these bars before baking them, so you’ll taste the chips in every bite! For those who are allergic to nuts, consider using sunflower seed butter in place of peanut butter, but keep in mind that this nut alternative often rises in a bread-like way.
