Butterscotch and Chocolate Chip Muffins

Muffins! Who doesn't love a soft and tasty muffin for breakfast, or to kick that 'wall' we all hit at work in the middle of the afternoon?

You know what I realized? Butterscotch is delicious, and I do not think to use it in baking nearly enough.  After throwing butterscotch chips in these muffins, both my husband and I were surprised by how much we really loved them! Lesson learned, our lives need more butterscotch.

These are super quick to whip up, and the recipe makes 1 dozen tasty muffins. I adapted this Chocolate Chip Muffin recipe which is from Company's Coming.

Butterscotch and Chocolate Chip Muffins
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  1. Line your muffin tin with cupcake liners (or spray with baking spray) and preheat the oven to 375 F
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside
  3. In a second bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until well combined
  4. Add the eggs to the butter/sugar mixture and mix well
  5. Add the sour cream and vanilla to the wet ingredients and again mix well
  6. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients
  7. Add the chocolate and butterscotch chips and mix until there are no clumps of flour left
  8. Fill the muffin tin, and then bake for 18 - 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted
  9. Let cool on a wire rack
  10. Enjoy!
