World Nutella Day!

World Nutella Day has returned once again!

This day has been and continues to be a wonderfully modern way to bring people together from all parts of the globe. This year, I decided to do something simple for this occasion. Throughout this past week I had a continuous craving for chocolate chip muffins. I usually buy them at bakery but I wanted the luxury of having them at home. Plus, I wanted to experiment to see if I could make them better.


Result: Sucess! I They were rediculously easy to make and to make things a little more creative, I decided cut them in halves and spread Nutella all over them. They were so addictive that I now need to take a break from eating them so this week I decided to snack on granola bars instead.

Below is the recipe for anyone interested in giving this a try. Happy Nutella Day!

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup whole milk
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners or spray the wells of the pan with non-stick cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugars, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
3. In medium bowl, whisk together melted butter, eggs, milk, and vanilla, mixing until well combined.
4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the liquid ingredients into the well. Stir until ingredients are just combined - do not over mix the batter. Fold in the chocolate chips.
5. Evenly divide the batter into the prepared muffin pan wells. Bake for 17-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
6. Remove muffins to a wire rack and cool for at least 5 minutes. Enjoy!

And do not forget the Nutella!
