Chocolate Chip Muffin Tops

Chocolate Chip Muffin Tops are what I like to call Muffin Cookies. They are scooped and baked like cookies but have the taste and texture of muffins. Light, fluffy and full of mini chocolate chips. These are perfect for brunch or dessert!

  • 3 tbsp butter softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together until well combined.
  • Add in the egg and mix thoroughly.
  • Add the flour, baking powder and salt. At this point, the 'batter' should resemble a packaged muffin mix. It will be very very dry.
  • Slowly add in the milk and mix until the batter is smooth.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Using a cookie scoop, scoop the batter onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  • The muffin tops will spread, be sure to leave space on the pan for them to spread!
  • Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until they bounce back when touched.
  • Cool for a few minutes before serving. Can be served hot or cold. Store in an airtight container.
